good effort, she is strong!
but that can't be her sons real name!
Go on, spit it out, what do you mean?
say what you want about the poor kid, he's got a lot more spunk than people give him credit for.
I'm sorry but the modeling shots are a bit over the top, and what's up with the Scarpa sticker in her biceps?! Sorry just makes me laugh, regardless how strong she is.
didn't notice that....my attention must have been elsewhere ;p
at 1min40seconds there is a windows "bing" noise :-( can't beleive i noticed that, but it messes up an otherwise very nicely made video.
Good effort, but all that swaying camera work made me want to puke. Keep it steady to reduce motion sickness please!
Ding dong! I say.
Probably is ... I have a russian colleague called Semenchenko. As yet haven't summoned up the courage to ask her where the name, er, comes from.
It originates from the Biblical name Šim'on, so the English analogue is Simeon, but in Russian he's Semen.
But apart from that what a great climber, I enjoyed the video. And I also liked the modelling photos, it's nice to see something different in climbing.
Did anyone see those Blurr adverts - Mick used some of them in his seminal <sorry couldn't resist> article series Climb Like A Girl:
Great climber, great effort, but what a terrible video!
I'm surprised that F8a+ is considered newsworthy these days - especially since there isn't any parochial interest attached. It is, after all 5 grades below the best womens grade. I'm sure someone more knowledgeable will explain - but I'm guessing its got more to do with marketing than to do with climbing news.
It's not in the news section, it's just a video they thought people might like to see.
You're right, it is. I'd read "New Article" for "News Article"
Bleedon' 'ell! She's stunning!
