Erbesfield has more recently concentrated on her family and career but was motivated to push herself harder after a family climbing trip to Spain's Rodellar last summer.
Another climber who has regained top form is the 46 year old former French competition star and hard route pioneer, J B Tribout. Having returned to climbing over the last three years he has recently managed to onsight F8a+ and redpoint two routes of F8c. You can view his 8a.nu scorecard HERE and read an interesting interview with him on 8a.nu HERE.
