This week’s video comes from the coastal climbing hotspot of Pembroke where Britain’s leading lady, Hazel Findlay, takes on Muy Caliente! – a route originally climbed by Tim Emmett at E10 6c with the consensus having settled at a scary E9 6c. Climbing the route in June 2021, Hazel has continued this incredible form by becoming the second British woman to climb 9a with her ascent of Esclatamasters in Spain earlier this year (footage here). Both ascents place Hazel firmly at the pinnacle of Britain’s climbing scene, cementing her position as the Britain’s leading lady.

Can they live up to the name?

With Dave Macleod having broken the news on Instagram that he’s repeated Neil Gresham’s latest E11 test piece, Lexicon, we thought it only right that this week’s video pays tribute to him and his latest ascent. So, whilst we wait for any video footage of the climb, we look back to Dave’s first conquest at the grade, Rhapsody, a ground-breaking ascent for the UK trad climbing scene being the first E11 ever climbed. Found on Dumbarton Rock in Scotland, Rhapsody took Dave over two years of work to eventually unlock and finally went down in 2006, check it out at the bottom of the page.
