Muscle Car (Font 8B+) for Brooke Raboutou

© Finn Stack

Brooke Raboutou has been in fantastic form since lockdown has ended and has climbed Muscle Car (Font 8B+) at Coal Creek Canyon near Boulder, Colorado. The crag has been seeing quite a bit of attention in recent weeks due to it's proximity to Boulder, particularly from Raboutou and Alex Puccio.

Last week at the same crag, the 19-year-old also repeated Chimichanga and The Wheel of Fortune - both Font 8B. Raboutou then turned her attention to Daniel Wood's Muscle Car, which was her first Font 8B+.

Brooke is the daughter of top climbers Didier Raboutou and Robyn Erbesfield and has spent the past few years making giant leaps in terms of ability. She is one of the American climbers that has qualified for the Tokyo Olympics.

Alex Puccio has also had a successful post-lockdown spree at Coal Creek Canyon, climbing the 'super low' start to Chimichanga at Font 8B+, as well as Muscle Car Light (Font 8B), Jeremiah Low (Font 8B) and Get Laid Diabolical (Font 8B).
