βeta: A hidden gem, overshadowed by the *** next door! Some superb moves, rightwards from the first ledge, then the chimney (thread at top), right again, then a wonderful chockstone finish - colossal! I understand that Birtwistle SOLOED the 1st ascent in 1936, a proper job! Sadly neglected for such an adventurous route, some might complain at HS but this is Kinder...

βeta: The first crack seems much harder than HS for smallhand or fist - retreated.
