Poland's Aleksandra 'Ola' Taistra has, after several years of work managed to repeat Cosi fan tutte, 8c+, in the Piscinieta Sector at Rodellar, Spain.

When she clipped the chains of the very steep 55 meter Cosi fan tutte for its second female ascent after Sasha Digiulian's, she became the first Polish woman to reach this level.

To Aleksandra however, I guess it was more about finally killing an old ghost.

Stay tuned for a more extensive account of the route and the ascent from Ola herself, as soon as the weather has cleared so she can make a photo shoot.
