βeta: An excellent route, an unexpected minor classic. The start is maybe 5a if you are 6ft+. For the short, the start is desparate. There didn't seem to me to be any gear until the second break (I didn't see any pockets that would take cams and the 1st break is rounded and flares). Quite stiff at VS in my view.

βeta: Think the grade on this one is about right, unlike many of the shorter VSs in the area.
