Started slightly right of the topo, but I climbed following the holds and it felt like Severe. Good roure. Most of the excitement at first few meters.

Very bold for Severe, I'd bump it up to HS. Lovely and balancy for the first half and just a shame it finishes up diagonal crack...I'm sure it could have been made more interesting with a different finish.
