βeta: Needs a good clean. Quite a bit of lichen and greenery around. Otherwise a fantastic route. Fun to do in a single pitch.

βeta: Block on the second belay felt a little loose 26-5-23. Can back up easily with wires to the right. Gear better than some make out. We left rope sling and crab to ab off. Scramble up a bit and you’ll see it. Can Ab right down to practically the start on 50’s. It’s about 46m to the far right corner where the buttress meets the short gully just right of the start of the route. Just watch the ropes as they run over grass and could get stuck. And stand clear at the bottom as small stones were dislodging. Well worth the trip though!

βeta: Hard to read, but not the moves, the description. Took the right (cleanest) line, but belayed in different places maybe- two pitches with a scramble at the top felt natural

βeta: Enough gear if you look hard enough despite what the description here may say. Crux is the "scramble off"
