Angy Eiter has repeated Fragile steps, ~8B in Rocklands, South Africa.
As a four times winner of both the Lead World Championships and over all World Cup, Angy is still best known as a competition climber, but she has also done numerous ascent of high end routes during the last few years. And now she has climbed her first 8B boulder problem!
K3 Climbing: It was Ashima Shiraishi who told Angy Eiter that there was a little roof at the fortress crag that could maybe suit her. Well it was! If you are good on crimps you like it!
I think this was the 4th female ascent after Doro Karalus, Ashima Shiraishi and Brooke Raboutou.
