Did most of this as I couldn't commit to rug crack. Finished mostly up Niche wall direct but its all within reach so its probably more accurate to log this.

Initially aimed to go direct up the crack, but felt too precarious to place pro (soaking wet) so backed down and moved right. Definately felt a grade easier even though the BMC guide lists both as S 4b?!?!

This was climbed with unladylike language, sounds and moves. Rockfax has this graded at S 4a.

Felt this to be the natural way to climb the wide cracks rather than the more popular straight up routes. Felt like the hardest route of the evening after Heather Wall and Plate Glass. Worth the S4b that BMC guide gives it.

Very Messy - showed myself up on SPA assessment with it! Assessor even dropped me a Top Rope! (obviously a deferral followed :( )
