Aries Susanti Rahayu has become the first woman to climb a speed route in under seven seconds and in doing so set the world record. She clocked a time of 6.995 seconds at the Xiamen World Cup.
Since 2017, the record has been broken three times, all by different climbers. Held for years by Russia’s Iuliia Kaplina, it was beat by Anouck Jaubert from France, then YiLing Song from China and now by Susanti Rahayu from Indonesia.
