Her instagram posts tell the story in few words:
- 24 Karats of Gold (5.14c/8c+) So excited to finally put this one away!!!
- Ummm I just did Southern Smoke 5.14c!!!!
- Just sent 50 Words for Pump (5.14c) in 4 tries!!!!
Michaela has previously repeated Pure imagination, Lucifer and The Golden Ticket all 8c+ and all in the Red River Gorge, so there can't be many of the grade left there for her to climb, can it?
In this year's US Bouldering Open National Championships, Michaela placed 4th in a very strong field.
