Brooke Raboutou, V13 at 13 years old
Brooke Raboutou, 13, has sent Fragile Steps in Rocklands, South Africa, her first V13.
Brooke has been pushing the limits of her age group since she started climbing nearly a decade ago. With this send, she is in the company of only a few other girls who have sent V13, one being Ashima Shiraishi.

Brooke wrote on her Facebook page: “I am so psyched to have sent my first V13 today! Happy to have had the help from my brother Shawn Raboutou and encouragement from my mother.”
