La Fabelita 8c by Nika Potapova (15)

Nika Potapova has done her second 8c, La Fabelita in Santa Linya. The pic by Henning Wang is three years old when she first tried it being 12 years old.

"She worked on the route just for few days and fell several times on the last hard move on her last day. The hanger of the last bolt had fell of so she took some very long falls and hit the wall some times due to a bad belayer. Great will power to try hard."

Some months later she did her her first 8c. When she was 13 years old, Nika hung on the Zlagboard for some 2 min and 40 seconds, which is an un-official female world record.

Still remember her from a bouldering competition in Warsaw - she was absolutely crushing, despite being so small that she couldn't reach the holds :) I'm happy to read this kind of news and hope to see more of them coming in future…
