βeta: Most of the line described is an older trad route called Gourmet (Hounsome 1979). Europe Endless is a direct (Gourmet stepped left for a move) and should be described as such.

cad1999 5 Jul, 2019 Lead dog Took ages but finally worked out the beta for obtaining the difficult corner. Used left hand on undercling jug, high left foot almost in line with left hand. Right hand on crimpy edge. Move left hand to catch the small finger hold, bridge high with right foot then use right hand to upwards thumbcatch a chalky undercling hold. Move left hand up slowly to gain the good edge. Want to try this again - hard but satisfying and think it will go now I know the beta.
