Audrey Sniezek has redpointed Porn Star (5.13d) at Little Si, Washington for its first female ascent.  If you’ve ever spent a fall at the Red River Gorge, you likely ran into Audrey as she worked her way through the classic 5.13’s.  Or maybe you ran into her in the Vegas area where she was putting away more hard routes.  Then again, you could have seen her in Australia, Canada, Vietnam or any number of exotic climbing locations.  Audrey has been a core climber for years, splitting her time between working online and sending hard routes.  Although she’s climbed nearly forty different 5.13’s, this was her first 5.13d.  Congrats Audrey.
