but why bring it up on a page titled "women climbers". If a mother dies, is it more of a tragedy then a father. If a mother dies in a car accident or of cancer, is it better then while climbing. My attitude is to make decisions that I can be fullfilled without doing something that will cause heartache to those around me, period. It doesn't matter if I am a guy (which I am) or a woman.
I've climbed with a lot of women, who are pretty strong climbers, and there doesn't seem to be an ego thing going on. Shelley, Lisa, Roxanna have all been great people to climb with.
Only problem is that in many climbing venues (magazines, on websites.....) its only about selling images to hormonal 14yr old boys. Take a look at "Rock and Ice" recently. 80 percent of the issues have deep water soloing stories and nearly ALL the images are of women in bikini's (which is nothing wrong but they should atleast be doing something else then a V1 problem).
Great vimeo video. How about images of strong women doing strong climbs....
