βeta: Removed a large chunk of loose rock near the anchors, instead of a big wobbly grabby thing there is now a side pull. Not sure how much/ if it effects the route.

βeta: Nice route, balancey moves up the face and just enough good/not polished holds to make it reasonable for the grade.

βeta: Balancy and interesting sequence of moves, from jugs to slopers and then crimps. Why oh why did they put the bolts at the top just out of reach???

βeta: Becomes a good warm up once you've climbed it once. If you sweat like a normal human, the crimps do get a little greasy. Almost decked off the crux once when my fingers greased off (sleepy belayer!).

βeta: Crimps aren't polished but it does get greasy easily in hot weather. Hard to read and quite balancy/tricky. Quality sequence of moves - most enjoyable...

βeta: This route is excellent - I dont think the polish really detracts as it is mainly crimping anyway.
