Lynn Hill and Nina Caprez. In 1993 Lynn Hill made climbing history by becoming the first person to free climb The Nose on El Capitan, perhaps the world's most famous rock climb. A year later she returned to make a one-day free ascent. As of 2019 only seven climbers have made free ascents of The Nose. Like Lynn before her, Swiss German Nina Caprez has climbed from a young age. Highlights of her climbing career so far include ascents of Mind Control 8c+ in Oliana, Infinite Story, a 420m long 8b+ in the Ratikon, and Divine Providence on Mont Blanc's Grand Pilier d'Angle.

Great interview from 2 inspiring climbers and not a mention of gender. Good to see 2 people just getting on with it and enjoying it.

Interesting how Nina's recollection of their first climbing day together is subtly different from Lynn's

Just weaving that one in as the whole gender debate seems to be a current theme of the website. Simply steering the article back on topic. ;)
