Vikki Wel­don sent the 40- me­tre Ver­don clas­sic Tom et Je Ris 5.14a. It was Wel­don’s fourth 5.14 and she sent shortly af­ter Cana­di­ans Sean McColl and Mike Doyle. It took Wel­don a few days of pro­ject­ing and af­ter her send, she said, “Today feels like a dream. Tom et Je Ris went down, but not with­out a fight. Star­ing up at an­other 40 me­tres of climb­ing af­ter stick­ing the bot­tom crux for the first time. It was a nail-biter with a foot pop right at the top. Thank good­ness for that try-hard strength and a lit­tle bit of luck.”
