BETA PHOTO: Beta Blocker problem beta.

Description 

Beta Blocker ascends an overhanging, lowball dihedral.

Sit start with a left hand on a big sloper shelf, a right hand on big sidepull/undercling, and a high right heel hook. From there, crank up to a right hand edge/pinch on the arete (crux?), match a left hand, hit the lip, and top it out.

Location 

It ascends the west face dihedral.

Protection 

The problem is definitely a lowball, but there is a bad rock behind the problem. I would recommend at least two pads.
