Nina Williams, first female ascent of great "monster" Ambrosia
At Buttermilks completes her trilogy01 March 2017
American climber Nina Williams resolved the famous boulder Ambrosia at Buttermilks, great highball problem of this mecca. “The Grandpa Peabody has captivated my attention ever since I laid eyes on it” reports Nina on her social. “I climbed Footprints during my first Bishop trip in 2015. I climbed Evilution Direct during my second trip in 2016. Now, on my third trip, I've climbed Ambrosia: the final problem of the Grandpa Peabody king line trifecta. These trio of lines have represented, to me, the essence of the Buttermilks: a frontier for facing personal barriers. I definitely had to face mine during this process. Still realizing that it really happened."
This is the first ascent for a woman.
