βeta: E1 done as in the photo. The 'small wires' are in the Arete on the left and are bomber. HVS done this way.

βeta: Definitely a wonderfully gripping top. I don't know about small wires - I got a large nut at 2/3 height, and a size 3 microcam in the corner when standing just above the ledge. Still makes the top feel much harder than it is.
