Andrea Hah: Gymnast Turned Rock Climber

Wednesday, Septembre 7, 2016
Australian Black Diamond Ambassador Andrea Hah grew up as a gymnast. But after discovering climbing, she has taken her aerobatic strengths to a more vertical sphere. Along with fellow Ambassador Lee Cosey, she embodies a #liveclimbrepeat ethos.

Black Diamond Ambassadors Andrea Hah and Lee Cosey are both from Australia, and together the two push each other through their hardest projects. "She's a machine," Lee says of Andrea, who last year became the first female to climb Tiger Cat, 33 (5.14b or 8c), in Australia's Blue Mountains. But Lee says that "Behind the hardcore climber and the really mentally strong person that she is, she's a softy." Now, Andrea is gunning for the chains on her next project.
