βeta: New improved description for guidebook pitches 1+2 from the FRCC website. 'Climb the groove to an awkward exit at a spike runner (possible belay above). Traverse left across a mossy slab to a groove. Move up the groove and swing onto steep face on the left. Climb leftwards to a small spike runner ,then right up a groove. Finish up left to a belay ledge'.

βeta: On mature reflection I think this route doesn't merit 2*. It hasn't rained for nearly 2 months so the first pitch was as dry as it ever will be, but the first 90% of the pitch is still very mossy with a few brambles (someone should take some pruners), isn't as easy as it looks from below and has no gear at all, making it quite serious. I would counsel severe grade climbers to avoid it if it isn't really dry. The second pitch is really good; pitch three is pleasant but unexceptional and the last pitch doesn't really exist - just random scrambling, really. An enjoyable leisurely climb, but 1* is enough.
