Weather issues... Day 1: worked out all the beta and gave one attempt before I called it quits and it started hailing. Day 2: Got to warm up on the moves for 10 minutes before it started raining.

During the last three months, the 19-year-old has done 53 boulders 7C+ and harder and she comments on Insta.
