This is an excerpt from the full report by PlanetFear:

Beginning her trip in Squamish Chief, British Columbia, Hazel redpointed the direct version of Leaving for California (5.13b / E7 6c). Hazel describes this route as "a thin crack with very delicate moves to start, which then steepens and the crack widens enough for finger locks..."

Hazel also onsighted the famous 5.12+/13a (E6/7) undercling pitch of The Free Grand, one of the most celebrated routes at Squamish. Moving on to The Bugaboos, she onsighted the 5.12c/d (E6) crux pitch of Power of Lard.

Moving on to California and The Needles, Hazel sent the hard classic Pyromania (5.13a/b / E7) and onsighted all 10 pitches of the hard classic Romantic Warrior (5.12b / E6).
