Got it on my second go, def one of the easier 7as at winspit. Beautiful climb as it has mixture of combing: crimps, sloppers, jug and a crack, some rests too.

mishabruml 12/May/17 Lead β

Good route but a bit soft. The crack isn't blind you can see it from the ground and while on the route, and climbed much easier than it looked. The crux for me was at the top, picking the good holds out of all the chalked up and ticked slopey shite ones!

Some beta for the hard bits, although I didn't use it all, but took a bit of working out still. Thought this was a good route.

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.

Gloria 31/Aug/15 Lead dog

Projected - first 7a ascent, back to do it clean, great moves. Final ledge at chains..

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.
