Austria’s Angela Eiter has become the first woman in history to successfully climb a 9b route.

You know we love Action Sports here at Chucktown. And if you read our recent report from Vienna, you know that we also love Austria.

So it’s pretty easy, then, to see why we love this story so much. But let’s just let the video do the talking.

The project was two years in the making for the 31-year-old, who achieved the feat in climbing the sport climbing route “La Planta de Shiva” in Villaneuva del Rosario, Spain on October, 22nd.

Only two people in history – Adam Ondra and Chris Sharma – have tackled a harder rated climb.
