Isabelle Faus sends Memory is Parallax, her third 8B+ boulder problem
Isabelle Faus has climbed Memory is Parallax, an 8B+ boulder problem at Elkland, Rocky Mountain National Park, USA.
Climbing under the radar as usual, America’s Isabelle Faus continues to impress with her inordinate power and relentless drive. Yesterday the 25-year-old from from Boulder, Colorado, made her way to Elkland in the Rocky Mountain National Park where she came up trumps on her project, Memory is Parallax. This 8B+ was freed by Dave Graham on the last day of 2011 and is now Faus’ third 8B+, after nearby The Wheel of Chaos in 2016 and Amandla at Rocklands, South Africa, in 2015.
Writing on 8a.nu, Faus stated "my proudest ascent, beautiful boulder with a great line. Wasn’t really sure if it would actually go down but so psyched !! The day before I felt super shitty... didn’t really have any expectation but to just stay in tune with it... then I found some fresh beta and took it down."
