βeta: The large flake sounds very hollow. With cracks on the left there doesn't appear to be much holding it to the crag? Potentially dangerous?

βeta: The first couple of bolts are fairly tough but once you get the lay back it's ok. At the bulge I made the maistake of going straight up and lunged for a pice of flowstone which pulled off and narrowly missed someone walking down below!! At least the tat held. Off to the left is a much better proposition.

βeta: Pleasantly sustained. I used the (new) foothold out right - I suspect the short may not be able to reach it!
