In this video, Anak Verhoeven makes the (likely) first female ascent of Francois Petit's 1994 piece de resistance Bronx, 8c+, at Orgon and the first ascent of Ma belle ma muse, 8c+, at Romeyer.

Anak has opened this season better than ever and seems to have taken her climbing to new heights. Personally I think this is necessery if she want to remain one of the best female competitors on the World cup circuit, as the level of female climbing in general has definitely made a leap upwards lately.

She is currently ranked #4 in the world and won the Junior World Lead Championships at Arco last year, her last as a junior.
