Isabelle Faus sends with „Goldrush“ 8B in Coal Creek / Pinecliffe (Colorado) an 8B first ascent . It was her 19th 8B Boulder ever and her first first ascent to that grade. Already in 2015, Isabelle was the fifth woman ever to have an 8B + boulder with „Amandla“ in the Rocklands and has now solved more than 100 boulder problems from Fb8a to Fb8b +.

Started on Pay dirt and finished on the Ashima trav. Has a hard sequence to get to the jug (v11/v12), then you have a V10 to do. I tried this a couple years ago and didn’t find a way, and thought it would be awkward even if I did.. but this year I finally did the ashima trav with the new master beta, and then decided to see if I could link from Pay dirt. I found a really fun sequence and got psyched, did it my next day at the boulder. I think my method is V13, well see how it turns out in the end. Fun climbing!!“
