Aleksandra “Ola” Taistra had a pretty spectacular week at La Muela in Spain, sending two 8b’s and an 8a+. That’s two 5.13d’s and one 5.13c in the span of a few days! Ola caught our eye a few months ago in this impressive video of her sending Cosi Fan Tutte (8c+/5.14c).
In bouldering news, Italian climber Alexandra Ladurner flashed Dark Dog (V10) in Zillertal, Austria. Adding to this already impressive feat, no other 8a.nu member has reported flashing this problem, male or female. Of Dark Dog, Alexandra says, “Totally unexpected. Maybe completely my style…great day!”
Climb on ladies!
