3 recorded ascents.

Climber Style FA Ascent Date
Jean-Baptiste Tribout Lead (Worked) 01 Jan 1989 (approx)
Lynn Hill Lead (Worked) 01 Jan 1990 (approx)

Jean-Baptiste Tribout infamously said "no woman would ever climb a 8b+", in response Lynn flew to France and repeated Tribout's route, and in fewer tries than it took him! [1]

When people say 'it can’t be done', it makes the task all the more interesting.

With this ascent Lynn became the first woman to climb 8b+.
