βeta: Not much difference in quality/difficulty to the other routes on the slab - best to climb whichever is free !

sjblake 11 Jul, 2010 2nd dog Easy up to the overlap. Took a fall at that point, then had a breather before trying again. Got over it but was pumped for the rest of the climb. "If this climbs easier than the grade (HVS) then I'm not ready for HVS"
