βeta: Ah this takes me back to the good old days! Having made early repeats of these routes when Doug had done them I have very fond memories of this wall. I do recall it being E2 5c so I'm suprised to see it 6c in this database. Then many routes seem to be suffering from grade creep these days (sorry I digress). An excellent little route worth seeking out.
