βeta: Polished and requiring some trust I personally found this tricky for the grade (really don't enjoy trusting polished rock and thus over cranked a lot of it)

βeta: I also have a lump of chert - this time in my knee. This is my warm-up route for my Accelerator training sessions and I must confess that my fat ass has ripped a lot of chert out of the 2/3rd height chert band - there's a big plate hanging there as we speak (I'll rip it off next time). However, apart from a smidge at the bottom, you don't need to pull on a single piece of chert on this route. The loose section is avoided by doing nice moves off wide pinches. Again, another guidebook comment written solely on the feedback of just one commentor. There's no difference in difficulty what-so-ever.
