βeta: The break is much more rounded than it appears from the ground and it is not easy to place the large friend. Reversing is hard too ! - I count myself lucky not to have broken a leg.

βeta: I was talking to someone about this. John Kirk is first ascentionists brother so he must be alluding to something ! Apparently Paul used pre-placed stacked hexes on the FA which certainly doesnt invalidate the ascent and apparently Martin Boysen repeated it shortly after. BTW this all second hand info - anyone care to confirm?

βeta: John K - What do you mean the FA was more like 1990? I did this route back in 1986 and I'm sure many others had done it prior to that.

βeta: The climbing is steady but the landing is bad. The break will take 2 friend 4's if you like.
