βeta: 4th bolt is looking a bit suspect. Hanger is spinning (couldn’t get it tight enough today) and the actual bolt in the wall is moving quite a bit. Needs someone who knows what they are doing to take a look and decide if it’s safe or not. I’m assuming probably not right now!

βeta: Redpointed this before it was fully bolted and had to put a couple of wires in to augment the in-situ gear. Certainly felt 7b+ to me.

βeta: Short but utter quality throughout. Felt pretty damn hard for 7b! Was hot though.
