Awesome work! Right: which British women have climbed harder? Can't be that many...
Lucy Creamer's done F8b+
Hazel Findlay's done several F8b's (inc on trad gear) but any 8b+'s?
I want to go climbing
Yeah... I know that girls have climbed harder than 8b, but the question wasn't that, it was if any British Girls apart from Lucy Creamer had climbed harder than 8b.
and the answer to your question is no.
Of the top of my head
Lucinda Whittaker and
have all climbed 8b. Don't know if I've missed anyone there. No-one apart from Lucy have climbed any route given 8b+, probably only Hazel has climbed as many 8bs or neared Lucy's level of on sighting.
Until Jules climbs 8c I guess :P I saw she mentioned one on facebook, what is it she's trying?
Is Boot Boys now considered 8b, I heard talk that it was?
Nice one Nat!
Amazing effort Nat, most deffinately more to come ! 8c is so realistic the way you`r crushing at the moment :)
You need to update your all important UKC profile :)
Well done. Lots more to come i think.
