After a, by her standards, disappointing result in the Atlanta World Cup, Sweden's Matilda Söderlund had something better to look forward to: Three weeks of climbing in the US.
Currently hanging out in and around Boulder, CO, she flashed Kelly traverse at Horsetooth and also did 606, in Eldorado Canyon, both 7C+, a few days ago, but now she seems to haft left bouldering for routes. She hasn't left Boulder though, climbing the 2nd 8c of her career, Prime time to shine at Clear Creek Canyon for what I suspect is the first female ascent of the route. Matilda's first 8c was Odd fellows in Frankenjura.
