βeta: Hard E2 5b in my book. No tricks, just need to cover the ground.

βeta: The line in the Rockfax appears to climb just to the right of the upper scoop. The moves directly across the bulge must be 6a+ (even looking from above, I would guess more like 6b). The BMC guide has two E2 lines going up either side of the bulge, the left-hand one moving up on the left of the scoop (hard 5c) or about a meter further right on the wall. Either that, or a large undercling has fallen off from under the bulge.

βeta: how hard this is depends on where you go on the top wall. anything from 5b to 6a, from L to R, the guide is very unclear on this...
