The UK climbing scene is known for its strict traditional ethic, yielding dangerous routes and a competitive machismo among the driven young climbers risking it all to prove their boldness. It's the last place you'd expect to find a nice little blond girl putting all the lads to shame, but Hazel Findlay is doing just that. She's the first woman to climb the British grade of E9 (8c+/9a). Having mastered the scrappy seacliffs at home she teams up with Emily Harrington to tackle the massive, untamed bigwalls of Taghia Gorge, Morocco.
