And prior to that her focus was mainly on comps in the run up to the Olympics, as well as a few setbacks due to injuries. So glad she's gone back to outdoor beast mode and is hitting form.

I wish some of the current competition climbers did some outdoor crushing. Would make it easier who to cheer for.

My finger cringes at the thought of that move.

Amusingly Steve Mac-esque self-deprecation in an interview with Shauna on the other channel, on her ascent of The Hydro...the holds "seemed totally impossible" and she "couldn't fathom" holding them. In fact she "wasn't sure if I should try The Hydro". But then did it second go  :-\:lol:

Any eagle-eyed people knowledgeable about Pedriza bouldering know what this might be?

That you answered yourself in under 10 mins is impressive.

Not entirely surprising for remusbot industries!!

That looks like terrible beta for an impressive offwidth chimney.

At this point I think the entity ukb knows as 'remus' is in fact a powerful data scraping computer programmed to pick up and analyse any and all climbing content from the internet for relevance and significance before posting it if it ticks enough boxes. Its like EARL, the lighthouse from the simpsons.

On another note, whatever Shauna's skincare routine is, it clearly works. No idea how shes climbing so hard so consistently on granite.

Do you reckon he asked and then looked for an answer for 10 minutes? Or posted, came back and opened the thread, saw the question and knew instinctively?

Without an anasazi style heel as well?

Someone get her on something hard!

Anyone know if she did Voyager and been keeping it quiet? I'd heard she was very close and it was basically just a mental barrier but the season seems to have slipped away...

I think the madrock heel is pretty good for alot of tricks, and could quite possibly snag well on that heel too

The next week (starting tomorrow) has a lot of cool, breezy, dry, overcast weather forecast. I'm ignorant about what such top-level grit climbing requires but to me it wasn't obvious the grit season is over.

So impressive that she continues to climb so hard having dealt with so many injuries over the last couple of years. Awesome! :strongbench:

Minor correction, but the stand has had quite a few ascents https://www.8a.nu/crags/bouldering/switzerland/gottardo/sectors/loch-ness/routes/hazel-grace/ The sit has only had 3 ascents as far as Im aware.

Massive effort. She's knocking out hard blocks so smoothly these days!
