Emily Harrington, runner-up at this summer’s sport-climbing World Championship, has redpointed Zulu (5.14a) at Rifle, Colorado. Harrington worked on the endurance testpiece for “seven or eight days,” and immediately after sending it on Oct. 8 she warmed down by redpointing Cryptic Egyptian (5.13c), which she had tried twice before.

At the beginning of September, Harrington, 19, redpointed Living in Fear (5.13d), also at Rifle. Her previous hardest route was Dolce Vita (8a+/5.13c) at Ceüse, France, three years ago.Comment on this story
