βeta: I came off this from the ledge after the initial crack, no gear in so decked out, fractured my elbow and shook myself up preety bad. Definately worth getting some gear in.

βeta: I soloed this, and agree that the gear probably isn't worth it. Grab a spotter (or a mat, if you feel like cheating), and give it a go. I did a lot of up-downing before committing to the layback to pass the roof, but enjoyed the move thoroughly. Great small roof problem / route.

βeta: One of the large HB offset nuts fitted perfectly, but it's not a common piece of gear.

βeta: If you think there's any chance you'll run out of steam on this and come off, take the time to fiddle in a small nut in the crack: it is awkward to place and hard to tell if it's any good. I saw someone do a too casual job off this, come off, rip the nut, deck out. Not nice.
