βeta: going up and slightly left over the lip but on good feet is the best way to do it

βeta: One balancy move leading up to the final overhang, with plenty of gear in the breaks. Friend 5 and 3.5 below the roof (probably a friend 4 too if you could be bothered with it as well). A nice flowing route, worth a star.

βeta: Yer not 5a but VS seems fair, protection seemed short near the top (although I only 2nded it). The crux was the slab below the top overhang I thought.

βeta: Where is the 5a move? It seemed very easy but very enjoyable never the less.

βeta: Very nice and blinkers not required toooo much. Well protected where it counts. Worth a star I would have thought too.
