Watch Brooke Raboutou Send Muscle Car V14

She was the first woman from the U.S.A. to qualify for the climbing at the Olympics in 2019

In 2019, Brooke Raboutou, 19, became one of several athletes, and the first to represent Team USA, qualified to compete at the 2020 (now 2021) Tokyo Olympics.

Raboutou was born in Boulder, Colorado and her parents Didier Raboutou and Robyn Erbesfield-Raboutou are former world-champion rock climbers. Brooke learned the sport and trained at ABC Climbing in Colorado. She became the youngest person to climb 5.14b at the age of 11.

With her send of Muscle Car V14, Raboutou became one of a handful of women to have climbed the grade. The climb came after two V13s: Wheel of Fortune and Chimichanga only days before. She was also on the Ellen DeGeneres show climbing her home during the covid lockdown.
