Weekend Stoker: Hazel Findlay’s Scary E9 Send

Hazel Findlay became the first woman to climb a British E9 (hard and scary!) with her ascent of Once Upon A Time In The Southwest, near Devon, U.K.

After trying the route just a month before, Findlay returned to Devon, England, with her belayer and father, Steve Findlay.

Be sure to watch how easily her gear placement at 3:34 falls out as she continues climbing. This is an excerpt from the Reel Rock 8 film Spice Girl. Findlay was most recently in Yosemite.
