DiGiulian’s Rolihlahla Repeated By Paige Claassen Among Others

It’s been a busy week for Sasha DiGiuliuan’s new route Rolihlahla at South Africa’s Waterval Boven, as it has seen repeats from Arjan de Kock, Andrew Pedley and now Paige Claassen.  Claassen suggests a possible grade of 5.13d[1.  DiGiulian had suggested 5.14b] while offering this comment about the route:

Regardless of the grade, Rolihlahla is an absolutely gorgeous line and I’m so glad that Sasha caught the fire to establish the route so the rest of us could follow suit! I know that many locals, especially women, have been inspired by new ascents in the region. I don’t get to climb with Sasha often, but it’s always incredibly motivating to pull down with strong ladies who put their heart into every attempt and contribute to the group’s motivation at the cliff. Thanks to Andrew Pedley for bolting another stellar line, and to Sasha for chalking up all those small grips!
