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,
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 :)
Makes Andy Kirkpatrick look like Bear Grylls.
Great interview - fascinating and inspirational!
I am such a Silva fangirl. Thanks UKC.

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