βeta: Yes 5a/5b move right at the top. Don’t know where HS 4a came from.

βeta: When did this get downgraded? It's only short, and well protected, but it definitely has a pretty stiff 5a move. Maybe it's because the description here is misleading. It basically goes up the middle of the wall directly to the left-hand of the two obvious cracks. Which is not 4a or anything close to it.
