Boulder Worldcup in Eindhoven - Monika Retschy

Boulder Worldcup in Eindhoven - Monika Retschy
October 07, 2011 -  Monika Retschy    

In Eindhoven, I had my second boulder world cup this year. After a good competition in Vienna my in Eindhoven was the semi-final. It was an open-air competition, but the weather didn’t play a good game, so the viewers disappeared under many umbrellas. A funny picture. As I had gotten some points in the world ranking list in the competition in Vienna, I didn’t have to wait too long in the Isolation. For me, that was an important thing for being even more motivated.


In the qualifying, I was able to climb three Boulders in four tries. It was not until this round finished, that I realized that my result was good enough for the semi-final! My first semi-final in an international competition! On the next day was the semi-final. I was really tired from the previous day, but I was so happy to be allowed to climb this semi-final. Although I just climbed one of the Boulder problems, I reached the 17th place. And I was really content.
