Projected - first 7a ascent, back to do it clean, great moves. Final ledge at chains..
Gloria - Lead dog - 31/Aug/15 with rachelvlc

Dogged up on top rope during my first ever sport trip a few months ago. Felt great to come back, work it and send it on lead. Really sustained varied climb, with full rest at halfway. First crux at low ledge hard to clip, and tricky to get over it. Final sequence to anchor very run out, on flat ledges. Depending on level of pump, recommend to go higher to top left hold to clip the anchor, rather than ledge just below.

Did the first 5 clips clean then got scared... Head game needs some work!

Lovely route, definitely 7a moves in there, with good rests if you look for them enough. Next trip it will fall!

Fell off this just under the chains, for no real reason. When you think you're there and get complacent, fate bites you in the ass. Despite falling off it, it did certainly feel towards the lower end of the grade.

Excellent! crux is low and there are plenty of rest points, still manages to be knackering though! top roped afterwards and found the crucial foot hold needed to clip the last bolt. looking forward to getting back on it... (ps. go right at the top!)
