Fantastic effort Emma.

> Emma's flash ascent is (we think - anyone know better?) the first flash of an F8a route in Britain by a woman.

Didn't Liv Sansoz flash or onsight Powerplant back in the '90s?

Well done Emma. I don't think Liv Sansoz flashed or onsighted Powerplant, she did it for sure but I think it was in a couple of goes, however I might be wrong, as it was quite a while back, in fact for quite a while Powerplant had only two female ascents, both french! Claudie Dunn and Liv Sansoz!
