βeta: Awful? I'm dissapointed in you Simon. The move over the overlap may be a sandbag at Severe but its delightful and unusual. The finish left on the prow is also good: harder and less artificial than it looks as well. HS 4b*

βeta: I took my first lead fall on this route! I was attempting it following the line in the guide, I was walking my hands up the slopers on top of the roof, and my hand just slipped off completely catching me by surprise. Luckily the gear was good - a no. 3 Rock Empire in the break under the roof, and a no. 8(?) nut in the crack on the left. Would like to go back and try it another time though (glutton for punishment maybe, my partner thought I was mad attempting it)!

βeta: Don't bother groping around for solid holds on the roof. It's mostly hand friction but the rock is rough enough. After the roof it is a romp.
