Prince of Thieves 8A flash by Natalia Grossman

31 October 2021

Natalia Grossman has flashed Prince of Thieves (8A) and done Beyond Life sit (8A+) in Joe's Valley (UT). In the picture, (c) Brennan Robinson, she does Big Joe Left (8A) and in total has made seven boulders 7C+ to 8A+ during just two separate weekend sessions.

In 2021, the 20-year-old did nine World Cups in Lead and Bouldering and just once she missed the podium. The season then finished with the World Championship where she was #2 in Lead and #1 in Boulder. This can be compared with 2019, when Natalia was on an average #14 in the Boulder WC's and in her only Lead WC, she was #53.
