Clear Blue Skies 8A flash by Natalia Grossman (19)

Sunday, 5 July

Natalia Grossman, who has done seven 8A+' and harder since May, has done her first 8A flash, Clear Blue Skies in Mt Evans. The 19-year-old is #1 in the 8a monthly ranking game. Last year she got two silver in the Youth World Championship last year and among the seniors, she was #7 in the Boulder World Cup in Vail.

"Proud of this flash!!! Brooke did this climb second try(a little while ago) and she wished that she had tried to flash it since it wasn’t “too bad.” She really wanted me to flash so she gave me all the beta and I carefully studied the climb before pulling on. Honestly, it was the first time I’ve tried to flash something hard and I look forward to taking my flash attempts more seriously in the future!"
