+Leah Crane on The Bach Block 7c, 112 kb 19 year old Leah Crane has just climbed another Font 7c, this time in Brione, Switzerland. During a quick fly-by 5 day bouldering trip to Magic Wood Leah also climbed two Font 7b+'s, taking only an hour of work to do both.

The 7c: With only one evening of climbing left before the flight home the following day, Leah set to work, but despite linking the lower section, couldn't get the top crux, a powerful left hand lock on slopers with a huge reach right to a a moon shaped flatty. Frustrated but determined, Leah convinced others to let her have another go in the morning and then face a mad rush to the airport in Milan.

It was on this last day of the trip, when she thought the climbing was over, that the highlight of her trip took place; topping out 'The Bach Block' Font 7c, in a combined total of no more than three hours.
