Comments: As of summer 2012, this has cleaned up reasonably well and is a decent route.

Comments: Really nice short finger crack; long moves between juggy finger locks. Great fun. Eats stoppers.

Comments: That above-head foot-cam move is the so-called "Belgian Beta", unlocked by Nico Favresse; I don't think that it was used on or before the first ascent. Most (all?) ascents since Nico have used it.

Comments: Takes some 0 and 00 TCUs, or equivalent. Soft and sandy rock at the start doesn't inspire much confidence in the little cams; sewing it up is definitely justified. Nice moves, though, and probably still worth doing.

Comments: Classic Spider's Web pump. There is a crux at the left leaning finger crack, but the crux isn't where you fall; the crux is what pumps you out so that you fall later on the 5.10a jugs at the top.
