2005 Bimba Luna 9a+ (Lead) 01 May 2005

Second ascent.

It hasn’t any repeats so this is first repeat. I was in Switzerland for a month and of all those days I could climb the route for only 10 days, with a media of 2/3 tries per day. [1]

2006 Hidrofóbia (L2) 8b (Lead Onsight) 18 Apr 2006

At the time the route was considered 8b+ which would make her the first woman to onsight 8b+. This ascent was doubly impressive as at the time 8c onsight was at the cutting edge.
