Elijah and Ginsberg Beta 5-Jun-2018 At 4:49:56 AM Olbert
Thanks for the info on short notice. We did Ginsberg first and managed quite well - 7am to 3.45pm on the wall. Elijah was 7am to 3.20pm but did an alternate last couple of pitches after a loose block blocked the correct corner. The alternate had plenty of its own dodgy blocks.

Edit: for future people googling for beta, the reason there we were blocked from the last couple of pitches of Elijah was that we missed the last belay bolt (high and left) which meant we belayed directly underneath the loose block. If you belay at the bolt, the block is not above your belayer and therefore it wouldn't be catastrophic if it let go with you on it. We decided to do the easy looking alternate corner on the left rather than move the belay. It is an ok alternative but beware of loose blocks (not directly above your belayer).
