βeta: The Potting Shed is very dirty and crumbley. Being a bit heavy I was not too comfortable on the dried mud. Bolt in the groove is very low and over the ledge - just below the dirty crux where you might fall off and smack your knees in before the rope comes tight!

βeta: Right again, up the deep corner, is The Potting Shed - a newly retrobolted F6a (I think). Watch out for some slightly creepy ivy roots in the congolmerate at the top of the corner - they are very, very dusty.

βeta: Unpleasant? Disjointed? Its a good route! Finger jam up the crack to the roof and then a very satisfying sequence of moves out from the roof. A big reach is handy though I'm not exactly tall (5'10").
