In reply to UKC News: Fantastic video! What a lady... so much to say, so much information in 13 short minutes. Thanks for sharing this, UKC, that was one of the most engaging interviews I've watched in quite a while.

Wow, what a totally driven, yet mellow, woman. Very strong sense of ethics and adventure.

Having battled through the Valdivian jungles I can testify to their energy sapping deligts - the prospoect of doing it 13 times then spending 38 days alone on a massive wall is beyind comprehension.

Thanks for showing this,

Lex

Much more interesting with such a spririt of adventure than some bloke climbing under a bridge...

Excellent to watch and listen. I can't even begin to understand the determination it must take to do something like that. Got to love the training plan too :)

In reply to UKC News: This is what real climbing is all about....risk and commitment going into the unknown..A totally different sport to messing around on boulders and jumping from bolt to bolt on sport climbs .

Normally I don't watch videos of climbers talking about themselves, egos etc.
But this one is so different.
