IFSC Vail World Cup 2011 Finals Rundown Problems 3 and 4 + Women’s Highlights Video. UPDATE – Men’s Highlight Video

Ok, so with another round of pictures, here is a brief rundown of problems 3 and 4.  At the bottom are two highlights videos with all the finals problems.

Final 3s

Angie Payne took a few tries to get through the bottom of women's 3, then got stuck here, just short of the bonus hold. On the right, Jonas Baumann is doing the rose move on men's 3 before a difficult unwind and jump to the off-kilter finish hold. It took him three tries, but he eventually sent the problem. | Jackie Hueftle

To the delight of the crowd, Dmitry flashed the dyno and the boulder. | Jackie Hueftle

Jain Kim impressed everybody when she made the double heels work on this problem, but it wasn't enough to help her stick the bonus hold. | Jackie Hueftle

Chris Webb-Parsons couldn't quite stick the dyno to the double slopers. | Jackie Hueftle

Anna Stöhr hiked her way to the finish. | Jackie Hueftle

Guillaume Glairon Mondet styled his way through the rose move, but couldn't quite stick the final hold. | Jackie Hueftle

It took her four goes to get to the bonus hold, but as soon as she did Melissa La Neve kept going to the top. | Jackie Hueftle

Kilian Fischhuber handily flashed his way though all the trickery of problem 3. | Jackie Hueftle

Final finals (i.e. problem 4s)

Angie in the initial moves of womens 4 and Jonas trying hard for the flash on men's 4. It took Angie two tries to get to her bonus hold (the right of the two orange pinches) but she was unable to finish the problem. Jonas also came up just short of sending his. | Jackie Hueftle

The crowd went crazy as Dmitry flashed men's final 4 and Akiyo looked like she might flash hers as well. In the end she sent 3rd go. | Jackie Hueftle

Jain Kim also looked like she might flash, but it took her two tries to reach the top. On the powerful and tricky men's 4 Chris Webb-Parsons gave some mighty efforts, but it took him four tries to figure out the right beta and get to the bonus hold. From there he gave a few good tries but couldn't quite get to the last hold. | Jackie Hueftle

Anna Stöhr powering through final 4 | Jackie Hueftle

Power fists fro Anna as she flashes final 4 and secures her win. | Jackie Hueftle

Helmet guy stood in front of us and danced for almost the whole comp. It was entertaining, but his white helmet was reflecting sun in a way that I feel was detrimental to taking pictures. Here he is watching Kilian and Melissa try their last problems. | Jackie Hueftle

Alex Puccio also hiked this pinchy problem for the flash and a 2nd place finish. | Jackie Hueftle

Kilian flashed and won. Everyone went nuts. | Jackie Hueftle

So there it is.  Everyone gave great efforts and gave the crowd a great show.  For the final results post, click here: Vail IFSC World Cup Bouldering 2011 Final Results and for the rundown of problems 1 and 2 click here.

    You must have been standing right behind us, Jackie – both Sarah and my fists/forearms seem to be prominently featured.

    What a great event – lots of excitement, a fantastic crowd, and great weather. We’ll definitely be back next year!
