βeta: First bit was pleasant and not as hard as I made it in my mind. getting over the flake though was too much for me...maybe at 5 feet 6 the good hold eluded me. I escaped on the right in the corner.

βeta: Very reach dependent, there is a crucial (very good) hold which would make the difference between 4c-ish or significantly harder.

βeta: Good varied route, worthy of more than its one star i think. The move off the midheight ledge is one that i found harder to contemplate than execute- it looks unlikely but does go at 4b.

βeta: Lovely climbing around the arete and up the curving crack. Move off the ledge up the overhang is perhaps 4c, especially for the short.
