Indonesian ‘Spiderwoman’ Aries Susanti Rahayu has set a new speed-climbing world record.

Competing at the 2019 IFSC Xiamen World Cup in China, the 24-year-old scaled the 15m wall in 6.995 seconds, leaving home favorite YiLing Song trailing in her wake.

It is the first time a woman has taken less than 7 seconds to scale a speed wall, and footage of the incredible feat has gone viral after being shared by Mark Serrels of CNET.
