Sasha is pushing damn hard but she's going to have to work on those cries if she's ever going to stand a chance against Sharma and Ondra ;)

Was it youtube? my monitor? or did they put that blue filter in the Norway video deliberately? Great apart from that!

amazing how relaxed she looks. Climbs so fluidly without any look of effort at what must be her limit. Very impressive, super cool head.

Didn't look fluid to me. Constantly rearranging her fingers, missing and putting feet on wrong foot holds. And how has she got a cool head?

Clearly she got it wired and sent it, good effort, but your comment made me think I was watching a different video.

I was watching it thinking "blooming eck, she got up this making all those mistakes, just think what she's capable when she gets something wired..."

Then she fell off!

I'm guessing the successful redpoint was the fluid, effortless, cool performance that Kemics was referring to...

I was watching it thinking 'that's a great opening shot - how did they film that?' Extra long boom cam or something, or one of those heli-cams?
