First woman to conquer one of world's toughest climbs

Angela Eiter has become the first woman to conquer one of the world's toughest climbing routes.

While female climbers have completed "9a+" routes before, this one – La Planta de Shiva in Villanueva del Rosario, Spain – has a "9b" difficulty.

To train, the 31-year-old made replicas of its holds and installed them into her local climbing wall in her native Austria.
