Women owned the climbing scene in 2017, with huge accomplishments from Margo Hayes, Angy Eiter and Shauna Coxsey to name a few.
Madeleine also reaped huge success last year - now one of the only British women to climb 8c and last autumn she climbed the rarely repeated free route, The Shaft, on El Capitan. With a good dose of humour, Madeleine describes the obstacles involved in big wall climbing as well as her personal attitude towards success and failure.
