Nuthin but sunshine 8B and two 8A+' by Katie Lamb

Tuesday, 30 June

Katie Lamb has done her sixth 8A+, Element Of Surprise in just one session as well as her first 8B, Nuthin but sunshine both in RMNP. Previously in 2020, she has also done seven 8A's and the 22-year-old is #7 in the ranking game, however, counting only last month, she is #1.

"My battle with Nuthin But Sunshine (8B) began deep in the pit, getting schraged on the first move. Then with the help of my squad of life list friends, I found a New Foot and had a New Hope that enabled me to climb free to the top. Got in the lake, Element of Surprise (8A+, crimpy, athletic, fun!) was the icing on top of the cake of the lake. I owe it to my squad for supporting me in the pit and lapping up my tears." So how can you be in the best shape of your life so shortly after the lockdown?
During the lockdown, I was not training my physical strength, only mind workouts. Now I am only climbing on the rock because the gyms are closed. On rock, I can make my fingers strongest, my arms pumpest, and my mind fortified with knowledge. Climbing is a game of learning : )


What is your climbing background?
I started climbing when I was 8 and had good success as a child, climbing 5.14 when I was 15. But I always dreamed a truth of climbing 8B boulder.

Update: Yesterday she did her seventh 8A+, Riddles in the Park in RMNP.
