It's date night for Hazel Findlay and her boyfriend, Peter. They forgo the usual dinner and a movie to try for the first free ascent of the Gervasutti route on the east face of the Grandes Jorasses in the Mont Blanc massif of the Alps. They still do dinner though - it's dehydrated vegetable soup. After a pleasant night in one of the least visited huts in the area they set out on their summit bid but quickly find themselves running worryingly behind schedule. Have their eyes been bigger than their stomachs? One Helluva Climbing Date on the Grandes Jorasses | Hazel Findlay Days, Ep. 3

3 episodes Latest 31st Jan 2014

She may be just 24 years old but philosophy graduate Hazel Findlay is a climbing force to be taken mightily seriously. Widely considered to be one of the most talented female trad climbers on the planet right now, Hazel cemented her position at the top of the heap last year when she became the first female to free climb 'The PreMuir' (30 pitches, 5.13d) on El Capitan in Yosemite. Oh and she's also the first woman to have ever climbed E9. An impressive kind of chick. In her new series for EpicTV, we'll follow Hazel as she travels the world pursuing her passion for climbing, pushing her personal limits and exploring places, people and herself......
