Michaela Kiersch has sent her third 5.14c in just over a week with her tick of Fifty Words for Pump at Red River Gorge. Previously, she sent Southern Smoke and 24 Karats at RRG.
She has raised the bar for quick sends of 5.14+ routes at the RRG. Only a few weeks ago, she locked down fourth place at the USA Bouldering Championships.
24 Karats of Gold (5.14c/8c+) ☑️ 💰💰💰 So excited to finally put this one away!!!! It was a rollercoaster of emotions between falling low and falling high. I try to take it in stride but it's not always easy to remain open minded. Every climb is a learning experience, and in the end it was the go that started with Mariah Carey 🎶 that got me to the top! 📸 @ladsquared and belay @kevin.mcnally.
