βeta: Very nice. If the Rasp is even better, I can't wait! Definitely E1 5b, and the crux feels hard, but is very satisfying. I belayed from the obvious ledge, but that's not the end of the climb!

βeta: A very nice climb- sure to warm up those muscles! Dont hang around while placing the gear! Crux is moving left near the top. The top out is also quite tricky.
