Hazel Findlay has climbed her first 9a with an ascent of Esclatamasters at Perles, Lleida, Catalonia.
Hazel is an inspiration for all climbers globally. I vividly remember her bouncing around Warrington climbing wall as a kid full of boundless energy and always with a huge smile on her face.
Well done on your first 9a and also for your phenomenal and unparalleled achievements in trad climbing.
Awesome. Hazel's a bonafide superstar.
What an achievement to add to her already very long list!
Totally and utterly inspirational.
As per the comment above, it's a very long list of achievements in a wide variety of different disciplines.
Angus Kille sent this route a few days ago too! He’d been projecting with Hazel but she just got in there first.
