Boulder Worldcup in Vienna - Monika Retschy

 
Boulder Worldcup in Vienna - Monika Retschy
 
September 12, 2011 -  Monika Retschy    
 

By reason of my good result at the competition in Kitzbühel, I was allowed to start at the boulder world cup in Vienna, my second world cup ever.

With pleasant anticipation I went to Vienna. The qualifying was on Friday. The women’s competition started in the evening because of the summery temperature. So I had a lot of time to adapt to the competition situation while watching the men’s qualification round. Finally, after a long day full of waiting, the women started to climb. With the new green Tricot I started to climb the first Boulder.

 

First Boulder: climbed in the first try. A good beginning.
Second Boulder: a jump. Five tries and the Boulder was completed.
Third Boulder: again climbed in the first try. It runs good.
Fourth Boulder: actually good tries, but I wasn’t able to hold the last hold.
Fifth Boulder: top in the second try.

In the end, I was 27th; almost qualifying for the semi-final.
But the most important thing is that it was a great competition with wonderful boulder problems and that I had a lot of fun.
