Robyn Erbesfield-Raboutou has been a big name in climbing since she exploded onto the competition scene in 1989, winning her very first international World Cup event in Leeds, England. These days she’s most-often mentioned as the head coach of the elite Team ABC, which has produced some of the biggest names in both competition and outdoor climbing, and as the mother of future-Olympian Brooke Raboutou and V16 boulderer Shawn Raboutou. She still crushes, though. Watch her take down Element of Surprise (V11) in Rocky Mountain National Park’s Chaos Canyon in this uncut footage.
