βeta: Only belay I could find is a flattish boulder some way back with an undercut rear base - wrap a big loop of rope around it. Agree with Rob Greenwood comments re 'V1 highball' in BMC guide. Reasonably protected without large cams.

βeta: Very dirty, lots of flaking dried lichen which ended up in my eyes and throat. Faffy gear off the deck with bouldery moves, into flared insecure jams and a typically grovelly exit.

βeta: Described as 'Highball V1' within the BMC Guide, which is absolute nonsense. It might be V1, but the landing is pretty shocking and it's pretty bloody high!!
