“It’s a kneepad, dude. You know what it is”
Here’s an awesome new video by Dead Point Magazine, featuring Colette McInerney in France, climbing on the Deverse cliff. In this video she tackles an 8a/8a+ (the grade is a topic of apparent debate, you’ll see at the end of the video) called Satanique (and I think we can all guess what that translates to). She talks in the video about coming to this cliff, with boyfriend and climber, Joe Kinder, where some of the world’s hardest climbing is, and being “cornered” into doing this particular route, because it is the only thing at her level. I totally love her realness, and also her smart use of a kneepad to work out the beta, and take down all those kneebars! She climbs hard in this video and totally kicks ass.
Stayed tuned for next week for our “exclusive” Crux Crush interview where we chat with Colette about everything from climbing hard routes, and the traveling life, to climbing fashion, and our mutual love of snacks. She was kind enough to do the interview, and we can’t wait to share it with you!
