70m, 2 pitches.

Rockfax Description
A cracking eliminate with a lot of fine fingery climbing and just a little unsavoury grass to remind you where you are.
1) 6a, 28m. Follow Patience to the bulge, then make fingery moves through this. Keep slightly right to avoid the vegetation until a horizontal traverse leads to a stance below cleaner rock.
2) 5c, 20m. Climb steeply rightwards to a rest in a shallow groove. Climb the groove, then trend slightly left to the bulges. Step right then pull leftwards onto the headwall and climb this, passing a man-sized hole, to easy ground and the holly.
The Beesty Boys, E3 6a - This follows the fixed gear up the wall, and through the bulge left of the The Beest pitch 2. © Rockfax

FA. Jeff Morgan Z.Dyszlewicz (8pts of aid) 1970

βeta: Grading seemed correct to me - Both p1 and p2 would be trivial if you have a long reach. There is no "man sized hole" on P2... The plants are greatly reduced in size at present and the route clean, apart from the veg ramble at the end of p1.

βeta: I think the grading is correct and unlike many on Beeston not a bit soft. Thought the top pitch gave superb climbing, about same standard as Black Grub. OK, pitch 1 isn't so great - but the crux bulge felt 6a, esp. since vegetation, cobwebs and general grot was covering the best handholds!

βeta: The description in the guide is correct for pitch 1 of the Beest. The variation Ian mentions is the old direct start to Patience which goes at E2 5c and may make a suitable variation start for the Beest as well, but isn't where the original route was climbed.

Top pitch a joy from start to finish with some big moves between perfect pockets and nice new threads. Found the overhang hard...a huge reach with blindly pedalling feet.
