In reply to Cragdog al: well yeah, the news doesn't mean she only got on the routes for the first time two weeks ago you pillock! She obviously just hit some awesome form recently so could knock off long-standing (probably?) projects. Brilliant effort.

In reply to Mick Ryan - UKClimbing.com: wasnt trying to taint her achievement in the slightest just enquiring to the accuracy of the report, but i understand it now!

I wondered what had become of her. Great effort! Great representation from one of our ethnic communities, as well. This is what we need! Go, girl, go!!

In reply to Mick Ryan - UKClimbing.com: This is the same girl I watched struggling on the HVS flake left of Small Smart Wall earlier in the year. There's hope for us all!

In reply to Richard Bradley:

Just a point. Ruth Jenkins at 5"1 never managed to do flying Butress Direct (HVS) - for obvious reasons, but it didn't stop her climbing 8b. Horses for courses. The routes Dal did are all classics, solid in the grade, and requiring different strengths. One is pure power endurance, the others require a fair amount of stamina. Very few women in the UK are currently operating at this grade, so to nail your 3 projects, 8a and above, within the space of two weeks is seriously impressive. I'd say you witnessed a very fit and versitile climber having one of those experiences we've all had on our off days....the ones you'd rather not be reminded of....I know I have. For just such an example see the story "The Day I Got Spanked by a Severe" which about sums it up. (link below)

Yeh, there is hope for us all or why would we bother.

In reply to shiv: Not having a go and I've seen a number of others looking a touch worried on the same climb. I for one have struggled on a V diff because it required jamming. Just nice to know that 8a climbers are human. The lad with her on the otherhand was levitating up everything while also being a very nice chap.
