Watch Caroline Ciavaldini Climb Requiem

Caroline Ciavaldini made the first female ascent of Requiem, which was the UK’s first E8 graded route, in the fall of 2014.

On the imposing walls of Dumbarton Rock, Requiem follows a difficult crack to a run-out upper wall and a very challenging finish. It was first climbed in 1983 by Dave Cuthbertson.
