βeta: its not 6a and you don't need to slap for the break... Reckon E2 5c, although there is reasonable gear low down. Great route though.

βeta: This is well undergraded. A yellow alien in the pocket/eye offers the only protection on the crux, which involves a dyno/slap off 2 poor slopey crimps above a nasty landing. Hard moves, which one of our team felt could be low 6b (and I'd agree with them), lead to much easier climbing above.
