UK women who have bouldered >= 8A
July 15, 2015, 11:51:51 am
Hopefully this list will be a lot longer than the following I can think of off the top of my head...

Shauna Coxsey - New Base Line 8B+
Mina Leslie-Wujastyk - ? don't know her hardest problem!
Michaela Tracey - The Dark Room 8A

Please help me fill in the gaps!

Don't think Mina's done 8B

think your grade cut off is a bit high if you want a comparable list to the men >=8B, 7Cish would be closer to the mark I think

Leah Crane - Tourniquet 8A
Ella Russell - Ben's Roof Extension 8A? (Long for a boulder and potential grade squabbling about knees aside, still a bloody good effort)

Think you're not going to find many more though, cut-off probably too high.

Is 7C not a little too low? What about 7C+?

  • If in doubt, Lock it out (Dynamically)
Jemma Powell - Corridors of Power?

Tourniquet still gets 8A, used to be 7C+ then broke and went to 8A+ and broke again so it's back down to 8A.

that's where I've got confused. i had remembered you being upset about it "only" getting 7c+ at some point

Thought CoP had settled at 7C+ now. I think 7C is a better cut off point

Is this another "in the last five years" list? If not Naomi Guy and Claire Murphy both climbed 8a+ (http://climbingaway.fr/en/climbers/claire-murphy) in the US. Remarkable how ahead of their time they were

Mina - 8A+ (lethal design plus more)
Jo Allen - 7C (the pinch plus more)
Emma Twyford - 7C (Rock Atrocity) Maybe something harder??
Jules Littlefair - 7C (Ben's Roof)

Dark Room and Ben's Ext may need grade adjustments, or slash grades, to reflect recent consensus.

Claire Bell (née Murphy) climbed Chbalanke (V12, now considered V11) some years ago. Also Sarah Sit Start around the same time.

She's now got two kids and is still climbing at least V9
