βeta: Not a ground fall at crux but would be big lob, perhaps hitting left edge. Worth HVS

βeta: Two hard 5a moves I thought and not too well protected for either of them; I think that makes it HVS 5a probably at the lower end of the grade.

βeta: This kept spitting me off and I was seconding. A very reachy climb and worth a 5b or perhaps 5c for the short. The gear is not the best and the first bit is high off the ground after the first long move from an unbalanced position.
