Boulder Borldcup in Sheffield - Monika Retschy

 
Boulder Borldcup in Sheffield - Monika Retschy
 
October 07, 2011 -  Monika Retschy    
 

Two weeks after my first semi-final in an international competition, I was on the road to Sheffield, the next boulder world cup. The weather was fantastic: sunny and hot! Motivated by the great weather, I climbed the boulders from the qualifying. So I climbed three problems and with this result I was easily qualified for the semi-final on the next day.

 

Like Saturday the sun was shining on Sunday. The atmosphere was intoxicating. That is why I was motivated although I had no power anymore. Anyhow, I was not able to climb just one boulder, but I got all bonus evaluation. Amazing, but this was good enough for a 13th place. My best result in a world cup, so far…
