On the 31st of August Debbie Corbett realised a lifetime ambition by redpointing a F8a route. She climbed Hot Fun Closing at Rubicon. The short, fingery route climbs the boulder problem Kudos to a shattered flake then tackles a tricky upper crux and was first climbed by Ben Moon in 1986.
On the 4th of October Debbie moved on to her second F8a with an ascent of The Dangerous Brothers, another bouldery route also at Rubicon. The Dangerous Brothers was first climbed in 1987 by Martin Basher Atkinson.
Debbie now joins the growing number of UK women to tick the magic grade of F8a.
