Gosia Lipinska sends Switchbitch 31/8a+

Gosia Lipinska sent Switchbitch at the Cauldron in Donker Kloof, Montagu last week. The route is graded 31/8a+.

The route which was opened by Jeremy Colenso in 1993 is relatively short, powerful and there is the possibility of hitting the ground if you fall off whilst clipping the chains!!

Gosia is sponsored by First Ascent and Black Diamond

    Thanks guys. This route has a ridiculous amount of climbing in a very short stretch of rock – mb its a sign that I’ll become a boulderer too 😉
