βeta: Couldn't reach the top from the upside down hand jam, had to let it slip out in a controlled upwards manner to latch the top!

βeta: The long move at the end is really nice to a satisfying finish!

βeta: There is a large pebble in the break which helps the undercut. I found the hardest bit was the start.

βeta: wrong. the final stretch is not from an upside down jam. it is from an undercut.

βeta: The description is wrong, from the ledge a couple of powerful and pumpy moves through steep ground lead to a gently sloping break (keep left) Then jam up the crack finally using an upside down jam to reach the last break, which can be undercut for the even longer reach to an easy topout. good moves after the evil start.
