Aurora didn't really know how to feel about how her team was handling it. On one hand, that Deathstalker was very much dead. On the other, some things were a bit overkill. No need to beat a dead horse. Or scorpion Grimm thingy. She relayed this opinion to the team, as she'd regained some of her strength back. "Y'know, no harm in stopping. We might be here for a while and stuff is limited. Especially for Tina and Nero because you two use ammunition and we can't exactly call Titan over for a restocking. Applies to me too to be honest."

"Well at least it's over with," Aurora said lightly. "Allllllrighty so now that that's taken care of, we can move onto the next one. It's... not too far from here, still in the maze, lower right. This little scorpion chase actually led us closer to the entrance, which is a good thing." She squinted a bit at the map on her scroll, pausing to figure out a path. "Yeah, yeah. The short path we need to take to get there is accessible just"-this word she dragged out a bit-"over this left wall right here."

"So we can either climb or hack our way through again. Your choice."

"Climbing please? Pretty please?" Tina pleaded, trying her best to imitate a begging puppy, complete with eyes and all. After her first experience at makeshift gardening and trimming, she was definitely not eager to try her hand at that again. And, hell, she was willing to resort to this kind of stuff to avoid another experience. Not for all the Lien in the world--and that much could get her all the games she could ever want.

"You three can climb, but I would like two things. One, can Tina give us a scan? I would rather not land in the middle of fifty Ursai. And two, Aurora, mind giving me a push? Way faster than climbing a wall." Nero may be down thirty five percent, but her semblance recharges relatively quickly out of combat. A reload was in order, and what better way than while waiting.

Shaking his arm out as he strolled past the girls, Gwylan spun on his foot to walk back the rest of the way. That was actually quite the fun scrap, even if he was sent flying like a rather handsome ragdoll. Maybe it was time to start considering upping his firepower, put some dust in Irvine perhaps. Something to think on as they walked.

"Ladies, care for a boost?", he grinned at the girls, throwing his head back to indicate the hedge wall behind him.

"Yeah, no can do buddy." Aurora shook her head and sighed slightly over-dramatically. "Really though, semblance recharges at a fast enough pace, but we literally just finished a battle. Mind giving your gracious leader a break please? Climbing's good for the arms, back, shoulders, that stuff." She directed a pointed look to Nero. "Long-range doesn't mean you're exempt from having to work out every once in a while. Though this isn't really working out in the slightest, but it's a start I suppose."

She quickly found a hold in the hedge wall, taking the lead in the climb. "No thanks, Gwylan, this isn't my first... climb..." Okay, so that sounded better in her head. "Enjoy the view."

"Yes please and thank you, Gwylan," Tina spoke up; she'd just pulsed her semblance for a quick scan as per Nero's request. "Nero, there's no Grimm in the area around us currently, so you can relax for a bit." She boosted up off from Gwylan onto the hedge, a considerable distance higher than Aurora already. "We should probably speed things up a notch or two anyway."

"I should know how good climbing is. For one thing, I love doing it, especially with various tall flora. And also I scaled this wall like my life depended on it. Which it did, Deathstalker and all." Nero said to Aurora with a hint of annoyed nostalgia. Giving herself the biggest running start she could, Nero have herself a distance between Aurora and Tina, and was climbing relatively faster than Aurora. "Watch out as you reach the top. They aren't exactly meant to prevent people from slipping through. Learned that the hard way at a bad time."

Shaking his head as he stepped away from the hedge, Gwylan let his eyes run over Aurora as he waited for the girls to get to the top, just in case one of them slipped and needed a dashing hero to catch them. "You say that like I wasn't already, Aurora".

Giving himself a shorter run up than Nero, Gwylan leaped up and caught onto the hedge just as the girls reached the top, and started his climb. As it turns out, climbing a bush was vaguely similar to climbing a net, if a bit more stable thanks to the lack of waves. Perhaps a beach vacation was in order, when they had some free time of course.
