Maybe it was the heat exhaustion, but seemed bloody tough for a Severe! Worthy of more than 0 stars too.

Good climbing in the corner, using crack technique and bridging. Good gear on route. Steep finish high up with loose rock is a bit frightful, needing a cam to protect. I slipped onto gear 3 metres up and continued with climb.
