Two 8b+ by Marieta Akalski

Marieta Akalski has during the last week in Rodellar done her first two 8b+, Gemenis and Ixeia and she goes to #12 in the ranking game. Michael Watson took the picture of her doing Les Chacals 8b. "I am a climber trying her best to balance climbing with working as a massage therapist in Canada. I started climbing many years ago and quit for 6 years while I was pursuing my first career in Business. In 2011, I began a new career and got back into climbing, mostly doing indoor competitions. In 2014 I decided to pursue my real climbing passion and travelled to several top sport climbing destinations.
