Trad  Glorious E5 6b New
Climbs the arete left of Gloria direct. Without doubt the best trad route at the crag! Climb the arete direct on the right side 3m to a break (gear). Climb a further 2m to a flake (suspect gear), step onto the left side of the arete and make several hard moves via pinches and layaways to a good hold at the sloping shelf, mantle this with difficulty using a smaller shelf on the left.
