βeta: After the initial tricky start, continue up rather than being tempted to the right by the slope which looks the obvious way. Noted as a VDiff in the guide book, but definitely an S in my opinion. Plenty of protection but tricky moves do require commitment

βeta: This route is most definitely under-graded. Would have graded it at least HVD. The traverse and right hand arete is a VDiff but not before that.

βeta: As far as the belay goes then the horizontal break by the ledge just below the cliff top contains excellent friend and medium sized hex placements.
