Last route of the day in the fading light. The first top out felt a bit tricky but that's probably because I couldn't see the footholds. Well protected, nice climb.

Not severe at all, felt pretty well protected with easy climbing, HVDiff at the very most. Even worth a technical grade??

mattwilk 06/May/12 2nd O/S

Gets HVD in guide, a few slightly smeary moves but Severe is definitely a bit steep
