The beckoning break gives a good pump with runners galore.

Seems to me that it's ok-ish HVS for the tall, but probably hard as nails for the short who can't reach half of the footholds?

I got pumped absolutely solid on this and had to lower off within about 6 feet of the end. You have to work harder for both gear and holds than Id expected, there are very few "solid jams" and at 5ft11 there werent any footholds past about a 1/4 of th eway along. Very pumpy sloper dangling. Proper HVS, certainly, and I would say similar to Right Unconq in having no very hard moves (dont agree with 5b votes) but being extremely strenuous.

This is a very good route to test your staying power and getting a good pump on. The footholds are a little hard to find if you are on the short side which makes you work harder to stay on. Loads of gear if you can hang on for long enough, it would be nice to find a route like this but just a little longer...Paul Tomo..Let me know if you find one..
