Video: French climber Alizée Dufraisse in Spain

Alizée Dufraisse is one of a handful of climbers pushing the hardest grades in sport climbing.  A former pole vault champion, she has devoted herself solely to climbing, with impressive results- she is in a select group of women climbing at her level, and she has done well in a number of competitive events in Europe.  This video shows the effort she puts in to  complete the first female ascent of La Reina Mora (8c+/9a) in Siruana, Spain.


In this video, she makes an impressive attempt on La Rambla (5.15a), also in Siruana.
