Melissa Le Nevé sends a ascent of the route „golden ticket“ (8c+/ 5.14c) in Red River Gorge, Kentucky (United States) to get. The route was bolted by Kenny Barker and Adam Ondra could climb the route onsight.
Melissa by Instagram:„Got addicted my trip to the US end with clipping the chain of #goldenticket 8c+ , one of those routes on my #todolist !! I think I haven\u2019t been happier yet to climb a line ! Back in 2012, i was very impressed by the line and even more when I saw @adam.ondra onsighting it (which was one of my most inspiring experience in climbing). When I first tried it this year, I was even more impressed by the waterfall of massives moves the route has. I didn\u2019t have to jump like @michaelakiersch in the middle section (which is super impressive!) but I was on my max max max span..!\ud83d\ude48 after 3weeks of project processing going through all mental steps and weather struggle, I climbed this gem feel just on a cloud ! \ud83d\ude0a \nThanks a lot @pugklime for bolting this beauty ! Thanks a ton to all my old and new friends for an amazing time spent in the #rrg !\nAnd Thanks a bunch @andywickstrom for the artist touch of my #batgirl!“
