Video: Nina Caprez and the Silbergeier

Beal athlete, Nina Caprez made the first female ascent of a multi-pitch test piece in Switzerland called Silbergeier. When she was 13, she was told by the first ascensionist that she would climb the route when she turned 25. Shortly after her 25th birthday, Nina topped out on the Silbergeier after redpointing every pitch, including the handful of 5.14a's. This hilariously edited video captures the story and ascent.

Here is Nina Caprez on the notorious no-hands rest.
