Simon Parton Sends Terremer, V15

Simon Parton sent Terremer, V15 on his first day back to Hueco Tanks. This problem was originally put up by Fred Nicole and then later repeated by Paul Robinson, Daniel Woods and Dan Beall. It links Diaphanous Sea (V12) and Terre de Sienne (V14), both of which are crimpy, powerful problems.


Ashima Shiraishi sends Terre de Sienne, V14 in Hueco Tanks

Ashima Shiraishi continues to prove that she’s a top climber. On her first day back to Hueco Tanks she takes down two test pieces in North Mountain. Terre de Sienne is a Fred Nicole special and Diaphanous Sea is one of Hueco’s classics.

I shocked myself by getting the first female ascent of the legendary razor blade climb, Terre de Sienne (V14)! It feels so good to see improvement in my climbing and that I’ve grown!! 3 years ago, I tried this climb for 2 weeks and got shut down on it. I also quickly sent Diaphanous Sea (V11/12), the iconic climb right next to it. I did not expect myself to do both of these climbs today!!
