Today we’ve got the return of a popular Climbing Daily feature, but first we've got a quick round up of a good week for the World’s top female boulderers. The big news is that the female 8B+/V14 club now has five members after American Isabelle Faus made the first female ascent of Fred Nicole's 'Amandla' at Roadcrew in Rocklands, South Africa. Isabelle has previously done two 8B’s, both in Colorado, but with this ascent she joins Tomoko Ogawa, Ashima Shiraishi, Shauna Coxsey, and Alex Puccio as a female 8B+er. Not far behind her is Katya Saurwein who’s followed up her sixth place overall in the IFSC Boulder World Cup with an ascent of 'Fragile Steps' (8B/V13), also in Rocklands.
