Ju­lia Bobak Sends Her First 5.14a

Gripped - - NEWS -

West Coast climber Ju­lia Bobak ticked her f irst 5.14a with her climb of Mo­ti­va­tion at Horne Lake on Van­cou­ver Is­land. It came af­ter a few sea­sons of Bobak push­ing the grades up through the 5.13s. Af­ter her climb, she noted, “Be­yond stoked to have put away my fall project, and first of the grade. While pro­ject­ing hard sport climbs al­ways re­quires some sac­rif ice, I feel like bat­tling this one through con­stant ill­ness and in­jury took a lit­tle more out of me than usual, both phys­i­cally and men­tally. In­stead of get­ting psyched on the next project, I’m look­ing for­ward to a few weeks on the rest-eat-physio cy­cle.”
