Oh dear BBC. Now scrambled to "First woman and fourth person ever to free climb el capitan in a day"

Have they corrected it and it's still wrong?!

The Guardian's write up is surprisingly accurate and detailed, but with a note saying they corrected an earlier version with incorrect info supplied by an agency...

Ah, they've amended it and taken out the stuff about her being (now one of the few) the first and added a paragraph about Lynn Hill at the end.

To be fair, if I was a reporter who knew nowt about climbing and somebody told me that she was the "first woman to free climb el cap via this route in a day" I'd probably cock it up and leave out one of the details that then makes it not true....
