13 year old Brooke Raboutou has repeated Fragile steps in Rocklands, SA, her first ~8B.
The problem crosses a roof via small crimps and quite a lot of heel hooking.
This was the third female ascent after Doro Karalus (2010) and Ashima Shiraishi (2012).
Her brother, 16 year old Shawn, has kept himself busy as well repeating Golden Shadow, ~8B+ as well as The Vice and Ray of light, both 8B.
