Andrea Hah, Aleksandra Taistra and Matilda Söderlund aren’t letting anything stand in their way! Each one has earned the reputation of being a spectacularly strong climber in their home countries, and world-wide, and they are only upping the ante. Andrea Hah recently earned the title of being the 2nd Australian woman to climb 5.14b (shown in the picture above). Today she sent Bandula, (8b+/5.14a), in the Blue Mountains of Australia. Alexsandra Taistra claims a similar title in her home country: she is the first Polish female to send a route of the 8c+ difficulty. Today she sent Rima Libre (8a/5.13b). And then there’s Swede Matlida Söderlund, who shows no signs of slowing down, sending Fish Eye (8c/5.14b) in Oliana today – on her 3rd go.
Keep on crushing and inspiring ladies!
Climb on! ~Cate
