She is awesome... and yes I'm totally smitten!
awesome to hear she's team up with Realrocktour for this adventure, can't wait to see the film :)
Great stuff! Makes me want to pop up to Holyhead under the guise of visiting the folks to have a play on the cliffs :D (Although obviously not at that level!!!)
Awesome effort. The crag looks like a small version of Carn Vellen in Cornwall, next stop? :)
It can be all to easy at times to read report after report, assuming that top level climbers go out and put up hard route after hard route, day in day out with none of the team work and 'rigours' that your everyday climber goes through.
Ite refreshing to hear we all play the same game but to different levels and with differing degrees of experience.
I think Hazel is a real example to the climbingcomunity, inspirational and has great character, another deseervedly fantastic personal achievement.
To get a little back on track. Well done Hazel, an amazing achievement.
