Austrian climber Angela Eiter has redpointed Adam Ondra's Pure Dreaming in Arco, Italy. This was Angela's fourth 9a or harder. In 2017, she became the first woman to climb 9b with her ascent of La Planta de Shiva at Villanueva del Rosario, Spain.
Angy told UKC about the route: 'It demands power endurance. It goes through the big roof and ends with two big moves at the edge of the roof. At first, this sequence felt impossible for me (size 1.54 cm) but then I had a good beta that worked for me.'
Good effort. Especially for someone that is only a little over half an inch in height...
This further evidence that there is no need to gender split competitive climbing? But instead do it on a physical factors such as height/weight. Breaking down the gender divisions where possible must be the best way to equality right...?
