39 year old Belgian sport climber Muriel Sarkany recently repeated "Punt X", in the Gorges du Loup, France, and in doing so has joined a very exclusive club of women who have climbed 9a. The first female ascent of a 9a was back in 2002, but nearly 10 years passed before a second, so this remains an incredible achievement.
