In reply to UKC News: i don't know anything about women's sport climbing - is that the hardest female ascent or have women climbed in the 9s?

Josune B has ticked 9a (Baing de Sang and/or Bimbaluna).

Look at her! You clearly need to pay more attention to women sport climbing ;-)

Must be one of the hardest, after the ascents Morgs mentions.

sorry 'scuse my poor french must be Bain de Sang ie blood bath.

Bain de Saing was downgraded to 8c+ by Dave Graham. Bimbaluna has had very few ascents but was initially graded 9a+. I don't know who downgraded it to 9a, if this is the case?

According to 8a.nu, Josune B's hardest routes are

Bimbaluna, 9a+
Bain de Sang, 9a
Logical Progression, 9a

Plus several 8c+'s and lots of 8c's.

In reply to UKC News: Nice one - I like the gender neutral title (assuming you don't know Maja is a girl's name!).

You could say the same about threads about people called Drew, Chris, and - these modern crazy times - James!


(I know you mean that it's nice not to see a "pat on the head" thread title declaring "it's a WOMAN" )

I know another blond Slovenian women who's rather good and rather attractive - I wonder if they all are ;-)

Out of interest and talking about Josune, Manolo, the 51 year old from Italy who recently onsighted a vertical 8b+ in Kalymnos, has done Bimbaluna
