βeta: Stick a handjam in the break and it's straightforward.

βeta: I've fallen off the top a couple of times from exhaustion!! it's a tough move to get the hidden pocket in my opinion..

βeta: Lovely route, although I didn't quite finish it. I fell off going for the 6th (last) clip, then made it, but as I hung there shaking looking at the top section it looked way hard, so I lowered off, will try again another time!

βeta: Oh well, didn't find the hidden pocket. Went up right and had to hand traverse on crimps to get to the huge jug - felt hard. Pretty good route though.

βeta: glad that i read this before doing it as knowing about the hidden pocket under the big pocket helped a lot!!!

βeta: My first 6a lead, wish I had read the above comments before doing it. I could have avoided a lot of messing around at the top. I did find the pocket eventually though.
