βeta: I feel this should come with a 'bold' indicator. Moving from the first ledge to the ramp above is unprotected and may not feel easy or obvious enough to risk for people for whom E1 is their top grade, since the gear at foot-level would not stop you hitting the ground.

βeta: i got the pocket with my right hand and went straight up. is that wrong? this new description (and looking at the old line) implies you need to pass the pocket on the right hand side

βeta: Very worthwhile and worth it's grade and stars. Start is steep and fun, finish is bold and fun.

βeta: Did this on a warmish day, and found it steady until you need to get that pocket - its rubish. Stiff for 5b but might be different on a cold day. Good route though.
