βeta: 2 star my arse, sure the holds are all big but the moves felt so disjointed and awkward, polished where you don't want it to be and just generally quite unpleasant. Felt sketchy got a S, could have just been the polish

βeta: Really good challenging S 4a, especially with the start being over the 'bad step'! Good fun and perfect gear. Highly recommended.
