US lead champion, Margo Hayes, 18, has repeated The Crew, 8c+, at Rifle, Colorado.

The Crew ​has a little of everything. A bouldery start, a pumpy section, big moves on good holds, some slopers, a tricky undercling sequence, a vertical section and a final roof. There are also a couple of no-hands kneebars where you can get some strength back

This was Margo's 2nd 8c+ after Pure imagination at the Chocolate factory, Red River Gorge, which she climbed in late March this year.
