Maggie Odette sends "Mutton Bustin" (8b+)

50-year-old Maggie Odette can climb an 8b + route with the “Mutton Bustin” route in her favorite area, Maple Canyon, Utah, USA. Only last year, Maggie managed her first 8c route with “T-Rex“.

“Charlie said to me. He was right. Last week I started using the phrase “3-hang hell” in reference to my performance on this route. I was thinking about those hangs, dwelling on the hard parts until they became intimidating, instead of focusing on the climbing. I wasn’t opening up and allowing it to happen. Once I realized that, I went directly from 3-hang hell to sending on Monday. Awareness is everything.
In other, more important news, the toilets in the campground got pumped out this week. @woohano , of course, from a working burn earlier in the season.”
