βeta: Looks harder than it is. Go up the chimney and shuffle outwards on good ledges till you can move round the corner. Spectacular. Did it with a single rope, no problems at all, you just need to place your cams as much on the outside as you dare and extend the slings.

βeta: Ropework is painful, probably VS, up the chimney not the other face as thats basically impossible

βeta: Not VS, and possibly not 4b either, but very intimidating and superb situations. For the full VS tick, get your ropes jammed in so just as you swing round the corner, you're suddenly unable to move :-)
