There is no way this is Severe, just a warning in case you try 'The Niche'

alpinemonkey 15/Apr/14 Lead O/S

Graded HVD in latest Western Grit book and definitely feels it, more than an S.

Solo clean on sight. As expected, turned out to be a V Diff with a (well protected) crux in the middle. Easier run to the top. Gave Mike (spotting) a fright when I launched up, legs swinging, on the crux. Sorry mate!
