Victoria Gezel is a Minnesota based climber, and at only nine years old she is sending V9s. 

After placing first at the Hueco Rock Rodeo for Youth Advanced and the Women’s Dyno Competition, she sent Kim With a Bathtub in Her Head, a thin, technical V9. After sending the route, Gezel said, “I had an awesome time in Hueco, I spent eight days climbing. My proudest moment was after working Kim With A Bathtub In Her Head for two days, I sent it on the third. My first V9. The crimps were like razor blades.”

Congratulations Victoria, keep up the strong climbing!
