Clementine Pradal

Here at jjobrienclimbing we've had hundreds of letters from readers asking "When are you going to add some sophistication to your blog".
Hey, what was wrong with Big Al? ............. OK, OK, I hear you.
So here's Clementine Pradal. She's French, she's stylish and she climbs in pearl earings.
                 Sophisticated enough?

That's Damo in the background, more from him later.

Clem works Coolm Cave's icon 26, "Screaming Insanity".
I'm confident the stylish bloggers over at Red Phoenix Style are going to award Clem their highest approval.

Even Princess Russ never looked this good at the Cave.

Clem grew up climbing real mountains (in the French Pyrenees) with her family. Before she could walk she would climb mountains.

Two years ago she climbed 22's and hated anything and everything steep. Now she loves steep routes, enjoys falling (sometimes!), secretly hates slabs and climb's mid-20's.


All that stylish climbing can wear a girl out.


  1. Clem looks fantastic, maybe Big Al just needs some pearl earrings too?

  2. I saw this chick cranking up one of those desperately thin vertical slabs at Urbenville. And she says she hates slab?
