βeta: I reckon font 6b for just the seam either side(just got back from font!) Certainly nowhere close to british tech 6c. Good stuff all the same though.

βeta: V5? 6c? Nah. Right-hand slab (again, no arete) goes at V3/4, left hand slab goes at V4. Only starting down left and finishing up right, i.e. diagonally traversing the seam, is vaguely near V4/5, and is hard 6b at most. Probably best to do it on a cool, dry October day before is starts going green.

βeta: Using the seam right-wards is definitely a very nice 6b. Using the left slab with the seam, however, is far more taxing, but ultimately just as enjoyable. I spent half a day playing with all the different ways up it - but don't consider any of the lines E1...
