Red Hot Tortilas 8A flash and 2 8B's by Lucie Hrozová

Tuesday, 27 April

Lucie Hrozová, who has 14 medals from Ice WCs and later started bouldering last May, has had three goods weeks with new personal records. First, the 32-year-old flashed Red Hot Tortilas 8A in Sneznik. Few days later she did her first 8B, Temná hmota 8B in Sneznik (c) ON_OFF Production

"It was like two days I was trying to figure out a solution for smaller people. I have to match on a very small hold to be able to reach. Then on day three, I come it was half wet so I tried just the dry part and then on the 4th day it was dry and I tried my first like the real push and I send it :)" Video on her Insta

Then last weekend she did Conquistador 8B in Sklapsko which was set up by Jana Vincourková last yrar as the first female 8B in Czech. Video on Lucie's Insta.

"I climbed and competed mostly in ice climbing the last years and did a lot of mix and drytooling. Three years ago I had very serious surgery on my shoulder. I needed pitons, reconstruction of labrum, biceps and plastic of cartilage, and since then ice climbing is for me very painful. 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 route. Anyway, last year again I had a medical issue with compartment syndrome, and with this syndrome it is very hard to climb routes. Last May I started with bouldering. First I started just because I had to, because of the compartment, but lately, I really have found it very nice and I kind of fell in love with it."

Systematic Devaluing ethics

Debate/Jens: In trad climbing you are not allowed to have the gear or quickdraws in place and it was also like this in the beginning of the sport climbing era.
