βeta: There is good finger jamming in the break below the top but you may have to be a bit bold and step up with confidence to look it in the face. Good positive edges over the top to avoid a swimmers finish.

βeta: I have short legs, so what, Bridge! A much underated route. Felt correct for the grade. Reassuring gear.
