βeta: Don't be deceived by the innocuous appearance from the ground - this route is quite the battle! Reasonably certain the route is not 12m as the Rockfax claims - maybe 8m at a push.

βeta: Very simple but answers on a postcard telling me where the protection was (without using cams)! Easier to solo. 6m not 12m. Bombproof anchors at top. The crack kindly funnels the wind directly into your face for the last 2 metres!

βeta: Found it harder than Emma's Dilemma, which gets Severe 4a.

βeta: It's like any other VD crack really, stick a leg in and squirm up it!

βeta: Soloed this after I had done a couple of VS's. Kind of worrying, but pretty simple. Just some long reaches to slopey holds. But they're plenty good enough for general consumption!
