βeta: Footholds were good enough to do some jungle clearance on the big shelf.

βeta: Really nice route. Typical slab moves, and a little bold, but not hvs-bold. Try Perforation on Crows Chin a little further along if you want something hvs-bold

βeta: I loved this route. Can't understand why it got HVS in the new definative guide

βeta: pleasant friction climbing with gear arriving just too late for any of the real difficulties, but satisfactory for a little peace of mind.

βeta: a nice delicate groove - keep an eye for a pebble on a difficult move on the start of the groove.

βeta: Sketchy moves, protected by well spaced small cams more than a VS make IMHO. Very nice Airy climbing.

βeta: The first small cam placement is 3 or 4 feet off route to the left. Unfortunately I only discovered this later when leading Ariel, so did the first hard bit protected by a single dodgy nut. HVS without the side runner?
