In reply to UKC Articles: Fantastic effort. Good video too, I like the way it shows the whole climb and not just edits.

Superb!! And climbed the top move the sloper way which is harder than the way most ppl do it reaching off the undercut. thats the first time I have seen anyone use the sloping foothold at the base of the groove as a handhold, awesome!

Brilliant. Needs to work on her grunting though - it's hardly Maria Sharapova, now is it?!

It looked way beyond me too Gordon, i just meant she looked smooth and in control on the actual send. I wouldn't get off the floor.

Wow what an amazing climb! Well done Mina, go girls! If I could only climb anywhere near that grade, I do make the stupid noises though!
And that rope is amazing, wonder if it comes in pink? ;)

Wow, Mina is my new heroine.

As a girl, I find it so much more inspirational & relevant watching chicks pushing it out than guys.

She's brilliant. I'm going to boulder REALLY hard tonight thinking about this vid.
