βeta: Flake on the left is very flexible and at risk of breaking off.

βeta: The flake on the left about halfway up it’s really loose, be careful.

βeta: The juggy shield on the left hand wall about half way up felt like it was flexing when I pulled on it away from the wall. Seemed fine to stand on but take care.

βeta: A good route, but didn't feel very VS or even 5a to me - but I had just been wrestling with Gunpowder Crack. Badly.

βeta: Terrific little route. Solo the first and last moves feel equally hard, but all the way up all the moves are there and are enjoyable. Might deserve a third star.
