Part of me was hoping I wouldn’t report any ice or mixed climbing news for at least a few months. No offense winter climbing, but it’s cold out there and we’re ready to get sweaty. Despite my little grudge with winter I couldn’t pass up Sarah Hueniken’s send of Musashi (M12) in the Cineplex Cave of the Canadian Rockies. If you’re like me and have pretty limited knowledge of mixed climbing, just know that you should be impressed. M12 is HARD and very few women are climbing at this level. Lucie Hrozova holds the title for hardest mixed climb by a female at M14, so it looks like Hueniken is chasing right after her. For more on Sarah check out her site at http://sarahhueniken.com/.
Congrats on the send! Now onward to spring and sunshine!
