βeta: The chipped holds /pockets near the upper corner Belay ledge are bottoms of old drill holes. I've known them for at least 30 years, the weathering suggest they are original quarrying 19thC features. In some ways you could say the whole quarry is all chipped (and blasted out).

βeta: Good warm up, quite exposed near the finish. Think this'd explain the dubious pockets that happen to arrive just in time. Shame.
