Kids Rule In Magic Wood

27 Crags has a nice recap of what the kids have been up to in Magic Wood, Switzerland over the past few weeks with the highlight being a repeat of One Summer In Paradise (V13) by 12-year-olds Ashima Shiraishi and Mirko Caballero.

Remember when climbing just your age used to be cool?

5.14b For Robyn Erbesfield-Raboutou

In a repeat of what happened earlier this year in the Red River Gorge, 49-year-old Robyn Erbesfield-Raboutou has followed closely on the heels of 11-year-old daughter Brooke’s success in repeating Welcome To Tijuana (5.14b) in Rodellar, Spain.  Like Brooke, this was Robyn’s first of the grade, and while I’m not willing to get as hyperbolic as the fine folks at 8a.nu, Robyn’s career is pretty remarkable: multiple time World Cup champion, 5.14a back in the 90’s, multiple 5.14as in the past few weeks and now this.
