Sasha DiGiulian Sends First Ascent of Rolihlahla ( 5.14c) in South Africa

Last summer Sasha DiGiulian climbed Rolihlahla (5.14c) in South Africa. The climb is considered the hardest route at Waterfall Boven, one of South Africa's sport climbing destinations. The line was formally dubbed the Overlord Project when it was bolted in 2008 by South African climber Andrew Pedley. Rolihlahla  is Nelson Mandela's birth name, and colloquially means troublemaker.

DiGiulian told Rock and Ice in an e-mail last July that the route was her first time doing a first ascent and it was one of the most spectacular lines she had ever climbed.
