UKC Weekly Newsletter for 3rd April Search:
Hazel Findlay recently climbed her second route at the E9 grade with an ascent of Chicama (E9 6c) at Treardurr Bay on Anglesey, North Wales.

Hazel made history back in 2011 by becoming the first (and currently only) woman to climb an E9 with an ascent of the Dave Birkett test-piece Once Upon a Time in the South West.

Add to this her sport achievements (8b+ redpoint / 8a onsight) and perhaps most impressively her big wall achievements (free climbing El Capitan - twice) and it is plain to see that Hazel Findlay is leading the charge in adventurous route climbing.
