As many of you may know or even seen via the live feed, the Teva Mountain Games Bouldering Worldcup Finals took place this weekend at Vail, CO. Something noted by many of the live feed spectators is that it was somewhat basic in comparison to the setup used in other recent events. Those who watched the live feed of the Battle in the Bubble for example would know of the intense camera setup present in that competition. Live feed is definitely something that is going to become more advanced and prevalent at future comps.

Ladies first, the top five finishing women were all neck and neck throughout the competition with the only differences being the number of attempts. The women's first two problems were fairly straight forward, but the fourth problem was definitely more exciting with it giving way to some thrilling climbing, with the final move of the fourth problem creating trouble for some of the climbers. Chloé Graftiaux managed to get the edge over Anna Stohr as she landed herself in first place, but not by a great distance.

    Women's Results
  1. Chloé Graftiaux (BEL)
  2. Anna Stohr (AUT)
  3. Juliane Wurm (GER)
  4. Alex Puccio (USA)
  5. Alex Johnson (USA)
  6. Maud Ansade (FRA)

For the men's problems it was a trickier situation revolving around a dyno which was met with mixed feelings, with both problem three and four being noticeably difficult, with competitors really struggling with the leap on the third problem as well as the swing on the fourth. Woods was the only person to complete more than 1 of the men's problems, and managed to take the United States to the top of the podium.

    Men's Results
  1. Daniel Woods (USA)
  2. Tsukuru Hori (JPN)
  3. Kilian Fischhuber (AUT)
  4. Jernej Kruder (SLO)
  5. Francois Kaiser (FRA)
  6. Wouter Jongeneenlen (NED)

1 out of 5 stars Stuff like this makes me not so proud to be a climber :/ Maybe they ought to have squads of personal cheerleaders, too. But whatever, I climb for my own purposes.
