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?!
as well loving the action (and celebration) i'm also loving the colour of that rope.
Awesome! Shame about the sunglare higher up though. ;-)
......and no annoying music. Brilliant!
I believe it's the Nano
Also, effort Mina

I kind of liked it ;0)
Got my Mum staying at the minute and she wondered what the hell i was watching.
Inspiring stuff and it looked easy in the end.
Didn't look that easy to me :(

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.
Nice vid. with interesting commentary. Top effort.
Awesome Awesome Awesome!!! Watching that brought a tear to my eye... Well done Mina!
The last photograph (still from the film) is incorrectly mirrored though?

It's a Sterling Nano 9.2mm
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.
