βeta: Mate had his leg in a pot for this, said it helped cos he got a leg jam using the thickness of the cast to make it doable :p

βeta: The start isnt that tricky, it was easy to use the slopy foothold on the left (around knee-height) and fist-jam the crack. Although my second couldnt jam with her small hands and had to do some osrt of dyno I think. Nice climb.

βeta: Awkward is not the way to describe the start unless you have big boots and massive hands place a big friend high in the crack from the block on the left and then layback the right handside of the crack, to gain mortal sized jams.

βeta: Pleasant climbing (after a tricky start). Can be laced with gear, and makes a good first lead.
