Rifle, Colorado local, Jen Vennon, has made the first female ascent of Stockboy's revenge, 5.14b/c (or 8c/+ in our money).

The route was put up by Andy Reather in 2005 and given 14c/8c+. Over the years, it has seen quite a few repeats, some new beta have been found, and the grade now seems to have settled closer to the 14b/8c mark.

This was Jen's hardest ascent to date, her previously hardest being The 7 PM show, 14a/8b+, also at Rifle. Watch the video.
