Bereziartu first woman to on-sight 8b+!

Josune Bereziartu and another world-first! The Basque climber has just on-sighted Hidrofobia 8b+ at Montsant, Spain and, in doing so, has become the first woman ever to on-sight 8b+!

11 years have passed since the world's first 8b+ on-sight by Swissman Elie Chevieux (Massey Ferguson, Calanques, France, 1995) and although the current maximum on-sight has shifted up to 8c, the list of climbers capable of sending 8b+ in the purest form remains extremely restricted.

The previous best female on-sight was 8b while the best female flash was 8b+, carried out by American Katie Brown back in 1999 on, interestingly, the very same route Hidrofobia.

Bereziartu has continuously pushed the standards of female redpoints throughout the 1990's and 2000. In recognition of this she was recently named one of the ten best adventurers of 2005 according to National Geographic. She is currently on tour in France and hopefully we'll be hearing more of her soon...
