βeta: It's not that pumpy: I suggest you should go to the wall more often! Technically, I don't think it's any more than 4C!

βeta: enjoyed when i finished but good so pumped and knackered. that slight overhang is so pumpy.think would have been better if i had climbed it better, good gear just tiring to place. i dont trust all the rock here too as a huge block moved while climbing under the viaduct, scary!!
