Truely gripping video of Mina on Unfamiliar, keeping it spicy right to the end.

Any clue why she is clipped in to her harness via a biner rather than directly tied in with the rope? I'm guessing they were all having goes and rather than tieing and untieing they just had a biner on the bight to limit the faf between tries.

Dunno but that's got to be the hardest 5.11b in the world.

Someone asked Mina on Facebook the same question about tying in, her response:

Because Nathan and I were both trying it and it made for a quicker changeover (we were both falling quite a bit on the start!)
