Hazel Findlay with the First Female Ascent of Once Upon a Time in the Southwest (E9 6C)
Hazel Findlay has become the first woman to climb Dave Birkett's Once Upon a Time in the Southwest (E9 6C). 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 video is an excerpt of the REEL ROCK 8 film Spice Girl.
