βeta: Not sure what Ben was on about with the starting holds - but there are two holds next to each other, near the back of the roof. A left hand slot - that you can hold backwards (palm turned towards you), then using your thumb to make it a pinch. A right hand pinch. There is a pocket big enough for a few fingers nearer the lip that I would say don't start with as it takes out the first hard move, i.e. getting off the floor and into that hold+positon.

βeta: The pocket/pinch comes from placing your left thumb in a pocket - not much bigger for anything else - and your fingers forming the pinch. If I remember correctly the pocket pinch is about 30cm in the direction of the lip from the undercut.

βeta: Any advice on the start? Is the pocket pinch just left of the undercut or is it the good pocket further out towards the lip?

βeta: Try going feet first, it's easier - honest!
