βeta: A fine route, with an accommodating easy-angled ledge to contemplate the steep upper flake - fortunately this swallows runners to protect those superb moves... The chimney at the start is also fun!

mrphilipoldham 20 Sep Lead O/S Always thought this looked well hard from afar, and wasn’t convinced that it wasn’t when up close! But it’s one strenuous move to good feet, with all the gear in the world. Lovely route.
