Jody Hansen Climbs V12 - Font 8a+ at Hueco

© Patrick Cassiday
This week at Hueco Tanks, Jody Hansen, age 29 from Colorado climbed Rumble in the Jungle a V12 or Font 8a+, joining a small but growing group of women climbers to climb at that level.

Jody could have sent it sooner but fell reaching for a jug before a tricky slab exit. On the same day she also fell off the end of Flower Power V11..Font 8a, which would have been an impressive day. Jodie had also sent Chablanke V11...Font 8a, at Hueco earlier this month.

There was a mention of a possible V13 here:,8709.0.html --------------- Amazing news! It's really encouraging hearing about female ascents of very hard problems.

There was mention of more than that, if you read the whole thread. Go to and look at Josune Bereziartu's socrecard...
