Simon Caldwell 20 Oct, 2003 Show βeta
βeta: I thought this was a fantastic route. The proximity of the cracks on the left doesn't detract from it as there was no temptation to use them, they're in the wrong place. Tricky in the central section where the crack becomes too shallow for either holds or gear, but well protected and interesting throughout.
