This week at Hueco Tanks, Jody Hansen, age 29 from Colorado climbed Rumble in the Jungle a V12 or Font 8a+, joining a small but growing group of women climbers to climb at that level.

Amazing news! It's really encouraging hearing about female ascents of very hard problems.

In reply to Jenn: Thanks for that. Adam Lincoln is looking good after the sex change! :-)

There was mention of more than that, if you read the whole thread. Go to 8a.nu and look at Josune Bereziartu's socrecard...

But no V13...Font 8b up problems done yet by a women?

In reply to Mick Ryan - Editor - UKC:

Well, none that I've heard of.

It makes sense that the hardest problems done are stamina problems - seems like many of the hardest mens problems are stamina link ups too - Wheel of Life 8C+, Hydrangea 8C/8C+...

Sorry - no, I didn't see that bit.

Yes, I'm quite glad that UKC doesn’t allow aviators :-)

In reply to Jenn:

There's quite enough testosterone flying around this place already.

Question: Josune has done two Font 8b...V13 low level traverses. Do these count as boulder problems?
