Boulder World Cup 2011 reports


Mit einem fantastischen und stimmungsvollen Finale hat der Boulderweltcup 2011 am Samstagabend in München seinen krönenden Abschluss gefeiert. Hier ist unser Clip! Jetzt gehts erstmal Surfen & Bouldern, dabei werde ich auch über die Bouldersaison 2011 und was wir daraus lernen können nachdenken...

Tonde Katiyo and I will document the route setting of the 2011 Boulder World Cup. Our goal is to raise awareness and ultimately a higher standard of route setting at climbing comps.  For that Tonde has set up a site that allows for all kind of interactivity. Till the site is fully operational you can check out our route setting playlist on YouTube. The Milano BWC was really strenuous for me and I got a little sick after returning home, so I only managed to do some male qualification problems for today. Stay tuned for more tomorrow though and - of course I will be doing those "Boulder World Cup reports" again!

Boulder WC 2010 report #7 - Munich

 

The Bouldering World Cup 2010 stayed gripping up to the last problem! Munich's '72 Olympic stadium provided a worthy location for the final event. Of all the potential winners, only Chloé Graftiaux dropped the ball and didn't make it to the finals. In the finals Akiyo Noguchi won by the narrowest margin possible - Anna Stöhr needed one more try for the only problem the girls could climb in the finals.


Route setting was very "russian style" as many competitors put it, meaning rather rock like moves on bad holds, what tends to favor either, well, russians or … rock climbers. Since Adam Ondra is the best rock climber in the world right now It was no surprise than that he won the event and with it the overall Boulder World Cup 2010.
