The ladies kept the sending streak going this past weekend. Here are a few of the impressive highlights:

Spanish climber Mar Álvarez sent her first 8c/5.14b, Fish Eye in Oliana. She joins the ranks of several top female climbers to have sent this route, including Eva López, Sasha DiGiulian, and Matilda Söderlund.

American boulderer Kasia Pietras was busy down in South Africa sending Caroline, V10. Of the boulder she says, “Amazing looking line and climbs great as well…minus the painful start hold on the pinky.”

Back here in the good ole US of A, Heather Robinson earned herself the first female ascent of The Gayness (8b+/5.14a), which she appropriately renamed “The Happiness” on her blog.

Nice work Mar, Kasia, and Heather!

Keep on climbin’ on!
