Hazel Findlay and Madeleine Cope, two of the U.K.’s strongest trad-climbing ladies, take a trip to Sweden for some tasty granite cracks. The culmination of the trip is Hazel leading a heady, difficult route called Electric Avenue (5.13+ R).
This is a nice video from my friend and filmmaker Colette McInerny, which reveals the flavor of what it’s like to be on a trip with these two people, in particular, Hazel’s approach and mentality toward hard climbing. Hazel is a great climber, and a very thoughtful person who really seems to consider her reasons for doing what she does. Hope you enjoy this piece from BD!
