"Despite many examples to the contrary there is still a widely held view that women aren't suited to the steeper more powerful routes. Today Jenny Woodward put another nail on the coffin of that myth with her send of Urgent Action, an 8a+ straight up the steepest part of Kilnsey's North Buttress.
This is Jenny's second 8a+. She can now be found in the Listers Arms scoffing chips, cake and beer."
