βeta: Starting this direct is probably the hardest bit of climbing on this wall. Polish doesn't help.

βeta: Almost impossible to start when a little damp. As previous comments have said the bottom footholds are extremely polished.

βeta: As per past comments, the grading on this is well off by now. Can only assume that the original starting hand holds from its 4c days are long gone. We found alternate beta round to the left which is by far the hardest, most burly climbing at what is otherwise a mellow crag. Grading clearly needs adjusting.

βeta: Grim start if you are expecting a 4c - more like a 6 as it's harder than the adjacent 5s until you get past the second clip. Bottom footholds are polished with not much for the hands.

βeta: There is a large block missing at the start of this climb which looks like it was a key hand hold, also the lower half is very polished. As a result of these things the first half of the climb is more like 5c/6a, with all the easy climbing at the top.
