βeta: A really good route for anyone who has had their pride destroyed by the other so called "VS" routes.

βeta: Amazing route. Got the head in the game. The best lead to date, felt comfortable and gear placement was efficient, didn't get pumped. One to remember

βeta: Superb route. Once off the ground it suddenly feels a lot more serious and steep. Don’t hang around and keep moving to avoid major pump. Rests are awkward and require jamming. The top section is a highlight.
