She's not wasted any time! Must have been doing a lot of training during lockdown. I bet it would feel great to come out of lockdown and do a 9a.

That is brilliant, what a route. She’s been training very hard from following her instagram posts over the past year. Thoroughly deserved.

Awesome news! 

I'm curious though - the picture seems to show Melissa using a pinch for the first dyno instead of the mono used by other ascentionists?

She was in lockdown with her partner in Bavaria, and climbing was never banned here as long as you didn't travel unnecessarily - i.e. very local crags only - and climbed with somebody from your own household. Travel restrictions have been lifted in the last two weeks, making it ok for them to drive from the Allgäu to the Frankenjura
