βeta: Going up the crack on the right, the block on the top moved quite significantly when I placed a cam behind it and gave it a token pull. Also sounded quite hollow.

βeta: Block on top of pillar moved when I was using it today. Would suggest belayer stands clear just in case.

βeta: I can't see any reason to upgrade this from its traditional grade of VDiff. Only one tricky move and that's well protected. I suppose it depends on how good you are at chimneys!
