Isabelle Faus was able to climb her third 8B + boulder with „The Emasculator“ after „Memory is Parallax“ and „Creme de la crumb„, believe it or not. The boulder in the „Dick-Cave“ is a steep 7C + traverse into the Daniel Woods‘ Boulder „Circle Jerk“ 8B. In total, the 27-year-old already has 32 boulder problems of grade 8B and heavier on her account. The video of the forest fire on her Insta is impressive.
„Did a thing last week,, in the camp dick cave… gonna call it “the emasculator” V14.. adds a 12 move traverse into circle jerk… prolly v11 to a rest, into a v12, another rest and then exit in a v8,, hard to grade honestly. but certainly harder than circle jerk. 40 moves. more importantly everything is on fire…the park and national forest is closed, and thousands of people are evacuated.. stressful time on the front range right now.. ready for winter, let it snow… like everyday please.. swipe to see the Cal-Wood fire come down the hill. Pic of me is the crux of the Boulder.“
