From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Josune Bereziartu (born January 19, 1972) is a Basque rock climber. She has been climbing since 1989.

  • As of 2008, she is the only female to have climbed the grade 9a/5.14d (Bain de Sang in 2002 and Logical Progression). Bain de Sang in St Loup, Switzerland, had its first ascent (FA) by Fred Nicole and was the third 9a route in the world. Logical Progression is a sport route by Dai Koyamada.
  • In May 2005, she made the second ascent of Bimbaluna, graded 9a/9a+ (5.14d/5.15a). Bimbaluna was originally climbed by Francois Nicole (Fred Nicole's brother) in May 2004. The route is to the right of Bain de Sang.

Bereziartu has consistently pushed the limits of what women have accomplished in sport climbing. Before she redpointed Bain de Sang, only men had climbed the grade of 9a. And her ticklist of 5.14s would be the envy of many.
