It is such a beautiful route, it almost feels like it was set by a route setter. The first time I tried it was last year in July, i loved it from the very first try and I started the process of projecting and training the moves in the gym and on the wall. This year I made it one of my big goals and after I did Victimas Perez (9a) I was really motivated to come back.

After I arrived back in Ceuse for the second time I jumped straight on the route and saw fast progress, a lot faster then last year. I finished my preparation and confirmed my betas and after a few weeks in this season I sent the route! Now I am looking to try some other great routes here before I head back to Australia for a month.

The Australian has been a life style globetrotter since age 9 when she did her first 8b. "I started climbing when I was 7 years old, not long after I began climbing outside in the local crags after school with my dad. When I started climbing, competitions weren’t really a massive thing and I wasn't really interested in it anyways. I enjoy the challenges that came with climbing rocks and the process of projecting. When I was 9 years old my parents planned our first overseas family trip to the United States. By this point, I was totally in love with climbing and it was mostly all I thought about. My parents suggested we could maybe stop by and visit some outdoor crags in the states to try out the climbing in another country. This was extremely exciting for me, with Australia being pretty far from the rest of the world, climbing in another country was a big deal."
