European Boulder Championships 2015 – Women’s Qualis

Petra Klingler European Boulder Championships 2015 Innsbruck

Petra Klingler looking strong so far this season.

 

The Women’s Qualis video from Stuntwerk shows all 10 climbs from the two qualifying sets of boulders. Once again there are many names I don’t know, as it seems like lots of countries who don’t usually compete are present here and also many younger climbers are here. I wonder how many will continue on to compete in the regular IFSC Bouldering World Cups this season.

Women’s Quali Video

The coolest moment I think was probably the figure 4.

Well, and the dyno that resulted in this near miss that Shauna Coxsey captured:

Women’s Quali Results

The girls who made it are a mix of girls we’ve all heard of and been watching for the past several seasons and names that are brand new to me.

1st – In Group B Petra Klingler and Anna Stöhr both flashed everything to tie for first. Katha Saurwein was the highest scoring competitor in Group A, with 4 flashes and a flash to the 5th bonus, so she’s tied for 1st as well. It looks like nobody finished the 5th boulder in Group A.

4th –  Dinara Fakhritdinova from Russia was one fall behind Katha in Group A.

5th – Stasa Gejo (SRB) and Katharina Posch (AUT)

7th – Fanny Gibert (FRA) and Jessica Pilz (AUT)

9th – Charlotte Durif (FRA) and one of my favorites, Melissa Le Neve (FRA)

11th – Anna Gallyamova (RUS) and Jernej Kruder’s little sister Julija Kruder (SLO)

13th – Monika Retschy (GER) and Berit Schwaiger (AUT)

15th – Mina Markovic (SLO) and Juliane Wurm (GER) — These two have both won boulder World Cups before

17th – Yulia Abramchuk (RUS) and Hannah Midtboe (NOR)

19th – Leah Crane (GBR — yeah!) and Mélanie Sandoz (FRA)

There were a whopping 67 women total and of those that didn’t make it I’ve only heard of a few of ’em. Good job to everyone on what looked like a heated qualifying round where 3 tops wasn’t always enough to get through.
