Only days after Isabelle Faus' ascent Katharina Saurwain has repeated Jimmy Webb's The Shining in Chaos Canyon, Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado.

After falling a bunch of times on the normally not so hard ending of 'The Shining' 8B, I finally sent! This beautiful problem sits very high up in Chaos Canyon at an altiutude of ~3000 meters and is very often wet. It took a little patience, but was definitely worth it!

This was Katha's third of the grade after Nuthin' but sunshine in the Rocky Mountain National Park, and Fragile steps in Rocklands.

She is also working The wheel of chaos, ~8B+, so hopefully more and even better news soon!
