Paige Claassen has made the first ascent of the open project, “Digital Warfare”, weighing in at a solid 33/8b+/5.14-
Digital Warfare is found on the WOW Prow in Free State, South Africa and is the 8th climb to be established on the cliff line. The line was bolted in 2012 and left as an open project by South African developer Andrew Pedley and is considered the crown jewel of the area. This is Paige’s 5th 5.14 ascent and her first FA.
Paige is on the “Marmot Lead Now Tour” and will be attempting a significant climbing challenge in 12 countries over the next 12 months to raise $120,000 for charity. With each accomplishment Paige will generate media attention and drive traffic to her fundraising efforts to help raise money for women and children around the globe.
