βeta: The comments on this climb are hilarious. Thanks for that! Anyway: be careful of the block before the final groove. It looks likely to blow if it takes a fall and would be fatal if it hit your belayer. There are other runners, e.g. good crack 1.5m to the right.

Vixie 3 Aug 2nd dog The start is like a boulder problem, easy enough, the middle bit really easy. Needed a take when getting established in the open groove at top as no reachable holds. Rest of it straight forward enough. I'm curious how move into groove can be done so it's a 4c move.
