Margo Hayes Climbs La Rambla, Becomes First Woman to Send 5.15a


Margo Hayes has become the first woman to send 5.15a on La Rambla in Siurana, Spain


I am overwhelmed and humbled by the support I’ve received from the climbing community, and my family and friends near and far. None of us achieves our dreams alone, we do so together, and build on those who have come before us. We are a community that not only supports each other regardless of our backgrounds and differences, but is also one that realizes the importance of respecting and preserving our planet. The climbers at the cliffs in Siurana last weekend came from many nations, and were a snapshot of what the world can be like, one of support, communication, and peace. ??????? Kudos to @honngy for the initial send… up next @jon_cardwell! Thank you @greg_mionske for capturing our try hard moments! ? Xoxo Margo @thenorthface @petzl_official @lasportivana @dogearedjewelry

By far the most impressive effort on a route I’ve ever seen. @margojain sends “La Rambla” 5.15a.
