Therese Johansen has made the 4th female ascent, after Babsi Zangerl, Anna Stöhr and Doro Karalus, of Pura vida, 8A+, at Magic wood, Switzerland.

On her blog she says that she ...surprised herself by doing it.

She tried it for a bit last year but wasn't that impressed by it. When she went to have a look at it this time, she didn't expect it to be dry as it had snowed a lot, but it was and she got to work. After a while she had figured out all the moves and could do it rather quickly.

Must have been tailor made for me... YES I love to crimp!!! (and hate heel hooking).
