This week's Friday Night Video features 30-foot runouts in less than ideal conditions as Hazel Findlay attempts 'Muy Caliente!' (E10 6c) (E9 6c) at Stennis Ford in Pembroke.

The route - featuring a 'very spicy' 9 metre runout - was first climbed by Tim Emmett in 2010 who graded it E10 7a. Consensus has since settled at around E9 6c.

Hazel added Muy Caliente! to a long list of hard trad ascents around the world: Once Upon a Time in the Southwest (E9 6c), Chicama (E9 6c), Tainted Love (5.13d R, 8b+/E9), Magic Line (5.14c R/8c+/E10) and Mission Impossible (E9 7a), alongside significant big wall repeats and sport ascents up to 9a.

A fabulous little film! Just wondering why she didn't clip the thread at the start of the upper run out.

Excellent. Great climbing with such control and precision. I wonder why she didn’t replace the old threads?

In the article on here after her ascent, I think she said something along the lines that the cams were really good and the thread was only round a small bit of rock, so she didn't bother clipping it.

BRB, need to dry my palms.
