This is the sort of female climbing news that I really love reading about: not a 'first female ascent' of an existing route (undoubtedly newsworthy and significant though they are) - not a story of a feminine success already cast within the structure of the male-dominated norms, but the actual cutting edge of climbing being pushed and massive, newsworthy new routes being put up - by someone who happens to be female.
