Nineteen year old Kate Swain on loan to us from Perth Australia recently made a fast ascent of 'Poverty' 7B+ at Bowden Doors. Impressive is the fact that Kate sent the problem 9th go 3rd day using the high right foot method which requires a little more power to set up than the conventional method. This she adds to her recent ascent of Twister (B9) at Stanage plantation which no one would accuse of being a "girl's problem". Hopefully over the coming months we will see her add to these test pieces, I'm sure that she will!
