Hazel has written up an account of her ascent on her blog here: Hazel Findlay Blog
From the report it seems Hazel and Hansjorg swung leads on the route and that Hazel climbed every pitch free, some seconding and some leading.
"Freeing El Cap was once of my most enjoyable climbing experiences and also the most challenging. Although, for now I'm psyched to go bouldering and single pitch climbing I know I'll be back on El Cap at some point."
UKC hope to have more info and a full report on Hazel's ascent soon.
