This year she is focusing on upping her trad grades and doing some harder sport routes. In particular routes in Montagu – that work my weakness – that is extremely boulder powerful moves.
Below is a list of her more impressive sends to date:
No Longer at Ease (25) TM – second go
Four Strong Winds (25) Tafelberg
Neanderthal Rex (27)
The Optimist (27) – second go
Monkey Pump (29)
Twisted Steel and Sex Appeal (29) – which she sent last Friday
Gosia worked the route took for only 3 days (having to use the ‘alternative finger-slot’ – luckily her fingers slotted right in).
Her next project will most likely be Firestarter (29)at Waterworld since I was in the middle of working it when the floods rearranged Badkloof.
Gosia has been featured in the first of a series of films entitled ‘Be the first – Climb‘
