βeta: The redpoint crux, for me, became the moves beneath the redirect chain. These moves never felt too difficult in isolation but became super burly when linking from the ground. I make the hanging chain clip off a hold to the left of the obvious two-handed undercut. My left hand is on a crappy square block with my arm fully extended. Using two very good foot edges, I can sort of cam my body in here and clip with the right hand. This saves so much power for the next moves. The following moves, via the deep two-handed undercut, up the two wide pinches and into the kneebar were the redpoint crux for me. The key is to build up the feet so the throw into the large overlapping pinch holds is controlled and within reach.

βeta: Struggled clipping the first redirect/hanging chain. Powered out and ended up making a right circus of it. Must get stronger! And braver!

βeta: Probably one of the best routes of its grade in Yorkshire /World. It is totaly sport now. Long and Pumpy but grate to bag. You can get a bit lost these days as there are lots of bolts floting around. A clear marked Topo is needed.

βeta: Never found the hands off rest! Forget the wires though - no need.
