Awesome. Well done Hazel.
A free ascent of el cap as your first ever wall. Now that is what I call impressive.
1st Brit to free Golden Gate.
1st Brit woman to free climb any of the routes on the main section on El Cap.
Probably only the 3rd Brit overall after Leo Houlding and Ben Bransby to free any of the routes on the main section of El Cap (although itís possible that FreeRider may have had a few more?)
Amazing and inspiring ascent of one of the most incredible lines in the world.
And her blog about it is brilliant. Well done Hazel!
Her blog is epic. Amazing effort.
