βeta: Beta alert: Doubles of purple and green (0.5 and 0.75 c4) are useful! And don't turn the arete at the very top of the corner: though this is a good place to get gear, approx 1m lower is easier, on a big foot ledge and jug ;)

βeta: A really great *** route, with enjoyable and thoughtful climbing up a fantastic line. Although it can be well protected, it is very sustained. If it is HVS 5a then it is at the top of both adjectival and technical grades. The climbing is better than all the other VS and HVS routes at Trowbarrow, in my opinion. Two half ropes and a big rack are recommended.

βeta: Ok Andrew, but it doesn't have 'the line', which counts a lot for me, I still think JJ is the route of the wall.
