βeta: the pull over the roof seemed almost too close to barney rubble...it's only 4ft after all, but a very good, bucket pulling route. excellent!

βeta: The hard pull over the lip may now be a bit harder - a very useful foothold snapped off as I was rocking over on it earlier today (memo to self - lose some weight ;)
