Must be time for a thread asking "How many women have climbed 8a+ in the UK?". If my mental arithmetic is correct it's stll a surprisingly small number and another statistical oddity is that all the ones who have have done several.
Jenny: Well done on completing the Big Three. Fantastic effort.
Tyler: Sorry I've been out of touch - just about to make my [la(te)st] comeback, so will be in touch shortly. Now Yorkshire (Almscliff) based.
and how many have climbed 3, and had a baby in between?!! Effort.
Well done Jenny
Awesome effort on the Triple Crown! We were lucky enough to see Jenny's redpoint of The Groove on Saturday and it was brilliant, really inspiring stuff.
