All three of them managed to climb boulders of 8A in the last few weeks.
Sarah Seeger told us:
"We spent funny days figuring out many great boulder problems and solving them in real teamwork. Inspired and motivated by what was possible for the others, all of us could send some hard problems. Doro climbed 'Sun Ichiban', 'Dreams are full of maybes', 'Frank's wild years' and 'Marilyn Monroe'; Mona sent the wonderful 'Pamplemousse'; and I could tick 'Sun Ichiban', 'Pamplemousse' and 'Dreams are full of maybes' (all 8A).
Fortunately, some projects still remain undone, so there are definitely more great girlie bouldering days to come. A presto, ragazze!"
