Mina is on the British Bouldering Team and is one of the UK's top female boulderers.
In the first video we see the classic problems of Tommy's Arete (V9 at RMNP), Shot Tower (V5 at Lincoln Lake) and Seurat (V8 at Mount Evans).
Mina introduces her videos:
"This is the first of a few videos of our climbing trip this summer. Classic lines, cool problems and maybe even some hard ones if we get up some! These three lines were all great to climb: Tommy's arete was powerful and burly; Shot Tower was easy but scary; Seurat is a stunning feature making tenuous and difficult climbing!"
"A hot, hot day at Lincoln Lake proves successful, after a big fight Phobos (V10) was put to rest and a night time send of Unshackled (V9) finished the day off nicely."
