8b by Lynn Hill (50)

Rockandice reported last month that Lynn Hill had done Living in Fear, 8b in Rifle. "I’m really psyched to climb more. My 8-and-a-half year old son Owen started school again so I have a little more time to focus on climbing." In 1990, Lynn became the first women to do 8b+ but she is most famous for her first ascent of the 800m The Nose, 8b in Yosemite in 1993.
