IFSC Bouldering World Cup 2013 #5 – Innsbruck – Women’s Finals

Women’s 1

Akiyo Noguchi came out first and fell a bunch of times trying to stick the start jump. Finally she stuck it and finished the boulder.

Melissa Le Neve also fell on the start several times. She stuck it and time ran out so if she fell she was done, she matched bonus and moved left to the higher large red 1/2 saucer volume. Her right hand blew off the bonus but she hung the saucer left handed one arm. She got swung her feet back on and finished, laughing at herself.

Aya Onoe finally got through the bottom to bonus, only to fall here and then fall off the start 2x more before time ran out.

Anna did the start jump, then fell. Looked at the problem, got back on, and climbed it smoothly.

Women’s 2

Start by mantling up on the teardrop volume. Jump left to sidepull and feet landing on volume. Balance straight up on high foot. Match left hand/foot. Stand up. Jump to finish.

Momoko Oda came out next and did the mantle straight off but couldn’t seem to do the sideways jump. It looked like she was going to smash into the landing volume. Then, all of a sudden, on her last go, she stuck the side jump, stood up, didn’t even bother with the bonus box (a taped box on the wall) and stood up to the finish.

Aya got through the beginning 1st go, then fell working her way up the slab. Next go (I think?) she solved the slab and sent.

Anna came out last. She flashed the bottom but as she started up the slab she bobbled the jib. She caught herself, bobbled again, caught herself, bobbled again, turned around to get the crowd to cheer for her, moved up the slab, went to the last hold right hand instead of left like everyone else. Grabbed it, then slipped and fell off! She looked very stressed. Next go she bobbled the slab again, caught herself again, got back up and went right again to the top and this time stuck it. 2nd go.

Women’s 3

Triangle volumes up a vertical or just overhanging wall.

Akiyo climbed up to bonus pretty casually, then fell moving to the last hold, coming up just short. Bonus is a triangle volume with another triangle volume on the bottom of it. Undercling to the last move. She fell there again. Didn’t finish.

Jule looked strong through the bottom into the bonus, then didn’t try to undercling and ended up falling off. Next go she didn’t use the undercling either, but it worked, cause she sent! Only send so far.

Aya climbed up to the bonus as well, then struggled trying to figure out how to get to the last hold. She falls. Done.

Anna came out, climbed through the bottom, used the undercling on the bonus, flashed! She was clearly psyched.

Aya climbs through the bottom easily, then falls trying to stand up on the arete. She falls some more.
