βeta: An enjoyable route with good gear and fair at E1 5b, but no pushover. Bold, loose VD chimney leads to an initially puzzling move onto the slab. A couple more moves bring you to a crack. Some of the rock here is suspect, on second glance, so be thoughtful with gear. A few technical and exhilarating moves using fingerlocks and layaways between foot ledges brings you to the next overlap. Get good gear here because it's your last. Awkward moves right (not left) onto the improbably perched block lead further right onto the headwall - be careful here with some of the holds, which flex. Better holds soon arrive. Watch out for snakes on the descent!
