FRI NIGHT VID: Caroline Ciavaldini on Requiem E8 6c

Last September French climber Caroline Ciavaldini made the first female ascent of Requiem E8 6c - Britain's first route graded E8 in 1983 - at Dumbarton Rock, whilst husband James Pearson was working Rhapsody E11. 

Caroline has made the transition from a world-class competition and sport climber over to the "crazy" side of British trad climbing with enthusiasm and relative ease, as tonight's Friday Night Video from Wild Country shows.

Read a UKC Interview with Caroline, in which she talks about her move towards trad climbing.

Caroline is sponsored by: Adidas Eyewear, Altissimo, Edelweiss, La Sportiva, The North Face and Wild Country and is an Ambassador for Urban Uprising and SPOT Climbers.
