And I think it's a bigger deal b/c she's a woman b/c she grew up with the girl set of expectations same as every other woman on the planet too.

When Scott Burke got the idea to try to free the Nose, He was barely solid at 5.11. He got in shape working the easier pitches and gradually got honed and better and better.

He had to be obsessed as he wasn't as gifted as some.

You can argue about to what extent he made it but nobody I've seen has made as much improvement in pursuit of a goal and that counts for something.

To bead the Nose speed record, it's going to take a LOT of work if insane gifts and boldness don't give a unnatural boost. Not just gifts, insane gifts.

Cause Honald is Honald and Hans has had the record for decades for a reason as well

Still, if that's what she wants to do with her life, you never know. Burke spent something like 280 days on the thing!
