First female Ascent – Mayan Smith-Gobat sends "Punks in the Gym" (8b+/5,14a)
"When I first tried Punks in the Gym, nearly 2 years ago, I thought that it was a climb that I would never be able to achieve because of its long reaches... . To avoid the powerful shoulder presses I came up with a new sequence. This made the moves possible for me, but changed the route into an unrelenting crimp-fest! Since then I have invested a huge amount of time and effort into climbing this route - it feels incredible to have finally achieved this goal and lifelong dream of mine! Thanks to everyone who has supported me throughout this process."
