Vid: Terrifying Moment on a Notorious Route

Mina Leslie-Wujastyk is a strong British climber who had only done one trad climb before stepping up to Unfamiliar, a notoriously hard E8, 6c (5.11c) at Stanage in the U.K. for an onsite attempt.

The higher she climbed, the longer the runouts and potential fall. As she made the final moves she got one final, nasty surprise that almost sends her flying.

It wouldn’t be climbing in England if someone wasn’t scared.
