βeta: Incredible route and much more horizontal than it looks in the photos. One of the best E2s on grit.

luke_blazejewski 2 Aug Lead dnf Had my second attempt at this on George's gear and managed to get further this time, pulling round the roof to get two jams in, but still can't quite pull over. Next time! Such a great route.

luke_blazejewski 26 Jul Lead dnf Tried it a few times on George's gear and got further than I expected to! Want to come back and give it a full blast. That boulder problem move at the crux is crazy, and then a heel hook?!

George Frisby 14 Jul Lead dog Basically aided the mid section but good to finally get on it after wanting to try it for so long. Much less jamming than I was expecting, all mega jug hauling and a couple of cruxy thin hands moves till the final overhanging main crack, which has to be one of the best hand jamming sequences around, absolute sinkers! Need to get way more beans in the tank to get it clean.
