Hazel Findlay climbs Conception, 70 meters long crack in the Utah desert
In the process of recovering from injury, does this singular 5.1305 May 2019
Hazel Findlay climbs the terrible 70 meters of Conception in the desert outside Moab and signs the second female ascent of the route.
Yet another beautiful ascent by the English Hazel Findlay who in Day Canyon, near Moab, Utah, climbed the 70 meter one push of Conception. This is a 5.13 climbed in a single shot by Dean Potter in 2003 who had thus freed Acromaniac, an old aid route 5.10 A0. The first female ascent is due to Steph Davis who inspired Hazel with a video. "He recently released a video of her climb on Instagram and this motivated me to try it. It's one of the most amazing climbs I've ever done, 70 meters of crack rising from the ground almost to the top".
