IFSC Bouldering World Cup 2013 #5 – Innsbruck – Men’s Finals UPDATED
Dyno 1 arm is the show move. Stand up on start holds, jump left, basically campus to top. Everyone did it easily.
Lots of volumes up an overhanging wall. Start with right pinch and left on arete. Move through volumes, stand up to an undercling triangle volume, grab another triangle volume, match, done.
Jan Hojer beasted it right off (apparently actually 2nd go, he slipped 1st go). Dimitrii flashed. GG flashed. Kilian flashed. Jorg flashed too. Sean flashed.
Mantle, volumes, undercling left, drive by right hand to red triangle out left. Match onto bonus hold jib, move to jib on upper triangle, lean over to last hold.
Jan Hojer came out and flashed easily. Commentators are speculating the problems are too easy.
Dima started strong, climbed most of the way up, fell, fell again. Sent.
GG came out, fell on drive by. Again. Again.
Kili fell off. Again. Apparently you fall doing the move after the drive by if you don’t keep your right foot on the large yellow orb. He does the drive-by, bumps right hand off, jumps and left hand hamhock, slides off trying to stick it. Last go, same thing. Bummer.
Jorg had much the same experience as Kilian. Stuck the cross. Couldn’t stick the match.
Sean came out last. Looked strong on bottom and drive-by, fell like Jorg and Kili trying to stick the match on the volume. They do a nice jump to the bonus hold/jib on the volume, but all seemed to slip off pulling up to stick it. Sean didn’t send either, and so now the field has flipped.

Men’s Final 4
This problem looked pretty straightforward. Thugging on volumes up a steep wall.
Jan Hojer came out first and if he
flashed he’d win. He flashed. climbed it quickly, he’d win. Apparently he fell from the start once before sending, but it didn’t show on the live feed. When he got to the top he knew he’d won, and he looked ecstatic. He wins! First gold in a Bouldering World Cup for Jan.
Dmitrii sent it 2nd go. This should keep him in silver.
GG sent as well but not fast enough. He knows it, and he’s pretty disappointed as he waves to the crowd and walks off. Jorg sent, not sure how quickly. Sean sent as well but not fast enough. Kili flashed and he gets bronze.
