βeta: P.S. Not sure how it warrants the 'strenuous' symbol either - it's a slab apart from the last couple of moves!

βeta: I don't think it's 5b, certainly not if you take the more logical right hand finish. Nice route though.

βeta: A nice balancy first move, good footwork in the scoop, then up the thin crack and high feet and a big pull to top out. A Classic. Brave... as no real gear until the thin crack!

Joecartmell 4 Dec, 2016 TR Had a top rope to get some gear so gave it ago, does anyone know if the big diagonal horizontal crack just to the left of the thin crack is on route? Seemed a bit desperate near the thin crack so reached over.
