βeta: 6a is about right I reckon. I used a sneaky pebble to avoid the hand swap on the little pocket. Surely the direct start can't be the same grade as nicotine stain? Will have a proper go and find out!

βeta: I found this very hard. In fact, I couldn't do it, despite doing Remergence, which is harder, the same day. What was I doing wrong?

βeta: Does anyone know what the arete to the left (looking in) is? The one that is slightly overhanging and has a very flat top out.

βeta: Not really a route. Save your ankles, and the eroding ground beneath the problem, and use a mat, and spotter. Excellent fun though.

βeta: The hard couple of moves are just above the ground. Sure it feels a little commiting afterwards but it's not too technical (5b?). Had a bigger adrenaline hit from this that I did soloing Motorcade (E1) at Froggatt!
