βeta: Loose rock came off today. About 30kg just below 4th bolt, including crux undercut. The remaining rock including the big shield in which the 4th bolt is anchored now looks dangerously fractured. Having ticked this route many times since the early 90’s it is now in the most dangerous state that I have seen it, and I recommend anyone to THINK VERY CAREFULLY BEFORE ATTEMPTING THIS ROUTE.

βeta: Very good sustained roof climbing. Crux is slightly harder for the tall, but the rest is then a bit easier.
