Lynn Hill climbs Chablanke

Posted on 08. Dec, 2008 by in News

Lynn Hill, age 47 has made the 8th female ascent of Chablanke V11 or V12 in Hueco Tanks. Fred Nicole has the first ascent of what is a very obvious sit start to Sign of the Cross V3 on North Mountain. Lynn is one of, if not THE, greatest rock climbers of all time and she has to be one of the oldest people, man or woman, to climb at this level. Ascents like these only solidify her already legendary status. Very well done!

As far as I know here is a list of women who have done Chablanke.
1. Lisa Rands
2. Claire Murphy
3. Ana Burgos
4. Jody Hanson
5. Angie Payne
6.Thomasina Pidgeon
7. Liv Sanzov

    Maybe at this point it’s best just to say “Lynn Hill does Chblanke” and leave it at that. To me, the bigger deal is that she is almost 48, a fact which impresses me more than her being female.

    I agree wholeheartedly, but I got a bunch of emails about who has done what, so I am just trying to make sure there is accurate information and no one is offended.

    I appreciate the drive for accuracy and sensitivity Jamie. Are you going to be at CATS tonight?

    I think it was Jean Val Jean, but then there was some controversy that Patrick Edlinger did it.
