βeta: A very line. Initially a bit slick (we clipsticked the first bolts), then super techy and trad-style balancey on the usual hard to read moves. Very absorbing nevertheless. That gives way to a ledge with a thread runner. Thread in good condition, but to its left is an obvious death block . Its marked with a chalked x. Be super careful and don't pull on it!. The final bulge is a handful, slick feet, and quite powerful. Quite stiff for 6b+. 35 metres.
