βeta: Several of the lower bolts have been positioned i such a way that the krab in them will be bent over an edge if fallen on (I think it's bolts 1, 3, and 4). These really need threading with a short sling. The initial section through the roofs is also on soft, sandy rock and has deck-out potential if the wrong hold snaps. I found this one of the most worrying routes I've done on Portland. The climbing is quite good though.
