I know we could do the maths, but simply saying that she was born on January 1 somewhat implies that she is just 6 months old :-)
Great achievement and a nice sequence of photos
Good to hear Emily's story.
Inspiring stuff, and to go from a 7b+ hardest redpoint to an 8a? Wow.

The 7b+ was very quick and I think really more about improving skills on rock. As an indoor comp climber Emily was physically already a very capable climber.
Brilliant effort on Abberation, well done!
BTW Hope Emily won't mind me saying that the scar on her leg from the operation is really quite impressive!
Strong effort, Inspiring!
Hi Emily, we'll be at raven for on Sunday. Early start to avoid the sun, should there from 8:30/9 until 1:30 or so when sun comes on the crag.
Nice one Em ;)
Well done Emily, this is a really inspiring story! I'll have to go and have an ungainly flail on some easy climbs at the Roaches :-)
