Jen Vennon Repeats The 7 P.M. Show (5.14a) In Rifle

Rock & Ice reports on their website that Jen Vennon repeated The 7 P.M. Show (5.14a) in Rifle, CO.  Female 5.14 sends are somewhat rare in Rifle and the R&I story does a nice job covering some of the history of women climbers there.  You can read some of Vennon’s thoughts on her blog.

    I find it ridiculous that Rock and Ice claims to know every woman who has climbed 5.14 in Rifle. I know for a fact that one was sent as recently as this summer by Lauren Lee (Roadside Prophet). She lives within 20 miles of the Rock and Ice compound and they were not aware of her Redpoint. It seems pretty arrogant to assume that some Euro hasn’t cruised threw the canyon and ticked one or two. I’m not trying to take away from Jen’s accomplishment.

    Hey, sorry, I wrote the piece, had been away and didn’t know Lauren did that route. I corrected it in our account. It is great for both of them. My point in the article was really that another woman has climbed 5.14. It’s exciting.
