βeta: Really fun route. Guidebook descent very sketchy when wet, probably a bit sketchy not wet too. We went a long way round down grassy slopes and down a gully to the right (when looking up).

βeta: Getting up to it and down from it is harder than the route itself. Getting off the ground on the right would give you the impression there isn't much gear but it all comes after a few meters. Repeated it up the gully and there's more gear in there.

βeta: Really nice route well worth doing if you like easy mountain routes with good views. For the descent we scrambled upwards then traversed under Far Eastern wall which would be awkward to nav in low vis if you didn't know the area but avoided descending any awkward loose ground. Came up via bowstring (barnwall, traverse off 2nd pitch) which was less interesting.

βeta: The block to ab down sounds very hollow and is likely to come off one day.

βeta: Good easy route, decent is more of a pain.
