SPA Assessment weekend. Lead clean on sight. Fairly straightforward but protection sparse. Ran out the top section but a bomber nut gave me confidence. Belay at the top is sound.

Topo seems wrong, surely it must go up the obvious corner rather than the wall to the right? I went up the wall and it was bold 4b.

The obvious line of the slab. Gear was fine, went left too early, should have carried on the overlap further up and right. Cracks above very well protected, rock seemed better than the other climbs.
