Nina Caprez has made the first female ascent of Helix, 8c+, at Pic St-Loup in southern France.
After falling around 20 times at the crux, she managed to refine her method and make the ascent.
This is probably her hardest ascent to date. Other routes on her ticklist include Mind control, Fish eye and GuŤre d'usure.
Now she's looking forward to her summer project, the multi-pitch Orbayu on the West face of Naranjo de Bulnes, Asturia, Spain.
