βeta: More like VS 5a as not sustained and good gear - Neb Buttress felt a few grades harder! Top bit is exciting and after a proper rest on a ledge.

βeta: a Beautiful delicate start leads to good gear, a strenous pull/leap to a good horn off a smear takes you level with the top of the crack of neb buttress and more bomber gear. From here the crux awaits you can get a friend 2 placed sideways in the flake/slot opposite the holly. then a high rockover and some small crimps enable the hanging flake to be grasped and a sprint to victory up excellent holds.
