Margo Hayes Sends 5.15a

Gripped - - NEWS -

Amer­i­can climber Margo Hayes sent La Ram­bla 5.15a in Spain at the end of Fe­bru­ary. It was a his­toric as­cent, as she is the first woman to send a 5.15. “I am over­whelmed and hum­bled by the sup­port I’ve re­ceived f rom the climb­ing com­mu­nity and my fam­ily and friends near and far. None of us achieves our dreams alone, we do so to­gether and build on those who have come be­fore us. We are a com­mu­nity that not only sup­ports each other re­gard­less of our back­grounds and dif­fer­ences, but is also one that re­al­izes the im­por­tance of re­spect­ing and pre­serv­ing our planet.”
