Stockboys Revenge 8c by Emily Harrington

7 October 2021

Emily Harrington has done her fifth 8c, Stockboys Revenge in Rifle (CO). " The best of Rifle in one line. Turned the spirals to twirls with this one. What a year and what a way to top it off. Really proud and thankful 🥰." (c) Colette McInerney

The 35-year-old is one of the best multi-discipline female climbers in the world. In 2005, she got the silver in the World Championship and last year, she did a one-day ascent of the 40 pitches Golden Gate 8a on El Capitan. Emily has also summited Mount Everest and on Cho Oyu, 8 188m, she made a complete ski descent.

What about your boulder personal best?
My hardest boulder is only 7C! I suppose that’s the discipline I’m missing because I’ve never put any energy into bouldering outdoors. I always joke that I will start my bouldering career when I have a kid because bouldering is a bit easier than that rest with little ones :) ha! We’ll see though.

What is next?
I’m not sure actually. I had a big year of climbing with Yosemite last fall and then my Kyrgyzstan trip. Rifle was meant to be just for fun and I guess I had a lot of fitness :) Now I’m going to relax a little bit. I’m getting married in December :) I’d love to return to Spain in the spring however - it’s been a while.

Notworthy is that Emily has also openly been speaking about eating disorder since 2017 and she was part of the video documentary Light.
