climbing
In climbing I do things that I enjoy and want to do not the ones that are currently in fashion.

Honky Tonky 8c, Oñate, first woman to climb 8c route

Oñate has become very famous, bacause there is Honky Tonky, the first 8c I climbed, and now a lot of climbers go there and try the route. Maybe not because they think the route is easier, but because they lose the respect of the route. If Wolfgang Güllich does the route, everybody will know Wolfgang is very strong, so you think, “Wow, thet route must be higher or stronger than he says and it must be unclimbable for me.” But if a girl – and at the time a not very famous girl – does the route, they think, “OK, why not, I am going to try it!”

1994

RED POINT
Hiena 8a, Oñate, Basque Country, Spain 

It was one of my “breaking barriers” for myself. Especially for my mind. Hiena and my first 8c route (Honky Tonky) were both hardest times in my climbing career that I remember. Those difficulties are more than a single grade; there are serious handicaps for climbers. After doing Hiena, 8a, my mind got free and without pressure I was capable to climb many 8a´s really quickly …Even the first 8a+ came relatively easy…
