/ Lucy Creamer - in-depth interview
I interviewed Lucy live on air today in an hour long radio show. More details / listen to the podcast http://www.sheffieldlive.org/2013/09/lucy-creamer-one-of-uks-most-accomplished-climbers-interviewed-...
Yeah yeah,,but does she know at exactly what grade do climbing shoes make a difference?
Whatever Hazel Finley is the best.
Thanks. An interesting insight from a really good climber.
Sad that your thread has only provoked small-minded & dismissive comment. On the othr hand, this is UKC!!
> Whatever Hazel Finley is the best.
yes, could it not be argued they are different generations though?
Also, quite apart from the climbing achievements, from the couple of times I've spoken to her (Lucy C, that is), a genuinely nice person.
Given the best climber is the one having the most fun, I think what generation they are from is unimportant.
In seriousness, this is cool. Ta.
Thanks. Yes, Lucy is an incredible climber with passion and achievements spanning many disciplines of climbing - trad, sports, adventure, comps, mixed - and she was very open and interesting to interview. Does she talk about 3PS or climbing shoes? You'll have to listen to find out :-)
And yes - of course HF is a superb climber. There's no value judgement here re "best".
There's a short interview within this radio show with Alan James of UKC and with Dave Douglas of Awesome Walls (also a pretty good competition from Awesome Walls to win a MONTH! family climbing pass to the new wall) but the majority of the programme is Lucy (and a few pieces of music she chooses).
