Ruth joins Jenny Woodward, Lucy Creamer, Dalvinder Sohdi and Karin Magog to reach the chains of Supercool (Creamer and Magog also climbed the adjacent Huecool, an 8b). Jenny Woodward is the only woman to have completed the Yorkshire Triple Crown (UKC News).
Ruth has been climbing for around 12 years. She got keen for sport climbing in 2005 when she remembers doing her first 6c. She did her first 8a, Watermark at the Wild Side in Sella this April and this summer she redpointed New Dawn (7c), L'Obsession (7c+), The Ashes (7c+) as well as Supercool (F8a+). Ruth has flashed a handful of 7b+'s abroad.
