Margo Hayes, 17, has repeated Jonathan Siegrist's Pure imagaination, 8c+, at the Red River Gorge's Chocolate factory, Kentucky.

Jonathan made the first ascent in 2010 and for a while it was considered 9a, but after an onsight by Adam Ondra and flashes by Alex Megos and Daniel Woods, it has come down to 8c+. This was the second female ascent after Sasha Digiulian's.

Margo has previously climbed a little more than half a dozen 8b+'s and harder as well as a few 8A boulder problems.

She took silvers in both Lead and Bouldering at last year's junior World Championships at Arco, and just last week she won the USA Sport Open National Championships.
