The UK climbing scene is known for its strict traditional ethic, dangerous routes and a competitive machismo among the driven young climbers risking it all to prove their boldness. It’s the last place you’d expect to find a nice little blonde girl putting all the lads to shame, but Hazel Findlay is doing just that.

24 year old Hazel is the first woman to climb the British grade of E9 (super hard, super sketchy), Hazel is a connoisseur of loose rock, dodgy gear, and big runouts. Having mastered the scrappy sea cliffs at home (with her Dad Steve belaying!) she teams up with American climber Emily Harrington to tackle the massive, untamed big walls of Taghia Gorge, Morocco.  This REEL ROCK Tour film gives a great insight into the psyche of one of Britain's best female climbers.
