Anna Stoehr does 8B... TWICE!!!
Unprecedented, but not unexpected. Anna Stoehr over the past week has done the first female ascents of two 8Bs, "The Power of One" and "The Vice", in Rocklands, South Africa.
The Vice and the Power of One, are two five-star benchmark 8Bs on the top of any hardman's wish list. Up until recently these burly lines had rebuked all female attempts. Once again, Anna has broken through the glass ceiling and set a new precedent for female bouldering, by sending these two lines, needing only three days to crack, The Power of One, and four for, The Vice. Hats off to Anna for raising the bar one notch higher! Photos of, The Power of One, by Reinhard Fichtinger.
