/ Hazel Findlay E7 FlOnsight.
Amazing effort! I'd call it an On Sight if I had climbed it in that style.
I'd take bets that this summer will see Hazel On Sight E7, especially considering UKC thinks Tombola is hard for E7.
This would be the first time a woman has On Sighted E7, right?
Onsight in my book. Good effort.
Onsight in my book too by whats written there. Fine effort.
just before people start using this term, it's a joke.
Nice one Hazel!
Anyway, great effort.
No, Lucy Creamer has. There may be one or two others..
Anyway, v interesting link to Hazel's blog and superb effort by her (and the others, particularly James P by the sounds of it).
Let's not debate this. It is tedious and obvious.
In which case it's not fair!

I am pretty sure that that is wrong, I think there are a few precedents. Emma Twyford springs to mind (not 100% sure though)
we just cross-posted! sorry
Jesus, we've given you two names above. Just google them.
Not to take away from a superb achievement from Hazel who really is a rising star of British climbing, never mind the supposed gender gap.

I hope that wasn't directed at me given that my reply was direct to the OP.
The only "ethics" here is that the STYLE of ascent was honestly reported.
Mary Jenner as well? I'm sure she's climbed E8, not sure what she's onsighted tho.
Still kudos to Hazel, it's a fantastic achievement and I love the term and the very honest reporting of the climb. TBH, if she claimed an onsight, I wouldn't quibble with that. Good blog as well.
Why not just call it an 'Onsight' or a 'flash' f***ing whatever. This whole jargon and splitting hairs is getting silly. She went there, she climbed it with no falls. Excellent all round!!
