βeta: Really good but spoilt by the ledge at 1/3 height (2*s because of it). It looks as though climbing in from the arete to the left would make this even better.

βeta: This is a lovely route. I'm going for 2*. It's a soft 7a I think but nicely technical.

βeta: Sorry Ben, don't agree with you on this. Its a nice climb for the grade, if a bit easy, but not one of the best on portland. We'll argue about it next time we meet up!
