βeta: The wall on the left hand was still pretty wet so had to take the overhang directly. There was more gear on the route than I expected and it would do with some more traffic.

βeta: Start now easier due to a large sidepull hold that has appeared on the right?

βeta: The start isn't that hard (certainly not 5a), wall-bred climbers should romp up it.

βeta: Worthwhile. There is still enough good climbing after the boulder problem start to maintain interest.
