Ramadan, the 8b in question, is at Siurana in Spain and Hazel told UKC:
"It's a bouldery 8b, the sort where once you do the move then you just have to hold it together on not that hard climbing, and I was really psyched and it was really cold so I kept trying it..."
Hazel has been having a productive sport climbing trip in Catalunya, onsighting several 8as and getting fit for the coming year.
Previously Hazel has climbed other 8bs such as Le Chirurgien de Crepuscule at Ceuse, France and Les Chacals at Pared de la Virgen, Rodellar, Spain, but she is perhaps best known for her trad climbing and big wall free climbing.
