βeta: Any idea if you're allowed to use the left arete to get up the mid-height corner? I did as it seemed a bit tough without and would be a bit contrived if it's not in as it's so close, but it's so positive it felt like cheating and I wish I'd tried it without!

βeta: A gem of a route but I can't see why it's VS 4b. It's well protected and there are good rests between each of the sections. VS 4c or perhaps HS 4b.

βeta: A delicate start, followed by an interesting middle, to a gripping finish add up to a rather tasty route.
