βeta: Just so happened to have three of the same size nut, otherwise would have been a bit bold.

βeta: this route is really not very well protected. you can get a nut in low down and them a microcam placement before the crux (which seemed hard for 4). the next decent placement is just before the top out. it would be possible to get 1 or 2 more okish nut placements but then you'd be loosing the best hand holds on the route. i think this route will push most vs leaders.

βeta: I didn't find the gear amazing - a few small cams in the flared crack, none of which inspired much confidence.
