Conquerer 8A+ by Lucie Hrozova

Saturday, 21 November

Lucie Hrozova, who has 14 medals from Ice WCs, has done her second 8A+, Conquerer in Sklapsko. Video on her Insta. Amazingly, the 32-year-old who has done the possibly hardest mix route in the world, Saphira M15-, started to boulder in May.

"I climbed and competed mostly in ice climbing the last years and a lot of mix and drytooling. Three years ago I had very serious surgery of my shoulder. I needed pitons, reconstruction of labrum, biceps and plastic of cartilage, and since then ice climbing is for me very painfull. As I can't do it (but I still believe I will return one day), I started to do more climbing with fingers instead of ice axes. Last year I managed to send my first 8c. Anyway I had this year again some medical issue with compartment syndrome, and with this syndrom it is very hard to climb routes. In May I started with bouldering. First I started just because I had to, because of the corpartment, but lately I really have found it very nice and I kind of fell in love with it."
