Hmm. I read the R&I article and, if it is correct reporting this wasn't actually their first attempt: "Though they had planned to take a “practice” run, the women climbed quickly and shaved over half an hour from their September 2013 record."

Whatever. Basically, it's just a bloody brilliant achievement and it's not as if they've had the combined experience of Hans Florine and Alex Honnold in either the general environment, that particular route or the whole speed climbing game.
