Faye Brouard on her project at Umgeni ValleyI know Faye's hand is cut off and so are her feet - ug - but what I loved about this picture was the look in her eyes, and the way she literally looks like she's going to tear the jugular out of it. Faye's determination is unparalleled. This pic just says 'holds your friends close and your enemies closer', that fine line between loving a route and just wanting to crush it.2 comments

Faye Brouard on her project at Umgeni ValleyThis photo is taken just a little over and on to the face, after establishing in the scoop. Pity about the draw dangling in Faye's face, but it does give a more accurate reflection of how steep it is. Crikey.

Faye Brouard on her project at Umgeni ValleyWhen Faye was working her project on Sunday she got to a new high point, and I think this is the shot just before she starts to throw at the crux. It's totally sustained climbing from here to the top, no room for rest so it's pretty core. Argh.

Faye Brouard on her project at Umgeni ValleyThis is probably the most photogenic part of the route, as one heads off the grey rock beneath and punches through the small roof to get onto the main wall. Faye's body does a great job in this shot of accentuating the curve of the rock...it's balancy, delicate and powerful all in one.

This shot shows the upper section, which is only reached after getting through the crux...mammoth hard pulling on tiny crimpers through sustained climbing up a massive scoop. It's insane. And awesome. And a girl made it. :)
