The Classic Yosemite View

Hazel has a fantastic record in the Yosemite Valley. In 2011, she free-climbed El Capitan by 'Golden Gate,' a tough and reportedly reachy 5.13a. This ascent marked the first free ascent of El Capitan by a British woman and the first female free ascent of 'Golden Gate.' She returned to the valley in 2012 to make the second ascent of 'Pre-Muir' (5.13c/d) with fellow Brits James McHaffie, and Neil Dyer before climbing 'Freerider' (5.12d) a year later.
