βeta: Very easy climbing on the most part, with loads of cracks and breaks to place protection. The crack and corner at 2/3 height are the only technical bit of climbing. the traverse is easy and not really that loose, compared to say the top out on Gim Crack, but the foot ledge is muddy and a bit slippery.

βeta: There's one bit at about 2/3 height that just about warrants 4a and a star. The rest is VDiff at most, and rubbish.

βeta: Didn't look in a guide and did a direct finish to boomerang. Some pretty good climbing if you stay between the parallel cracks above the ledge where boomerang traverses right, reminiscent of a mini avalanche wall at Curbar. Finish is on pretty suspect rock though with a difficult top out.

βeta: A good introduction to loose, chossy traverses and finishes. If your second isn't expecting this, expect them to be unhappy with you, and remember to protect the traverse with them in mind.
