Movement Climbing + Fitness filled to the brim with eager fans.
Last night, the town of Boulder came out in force to watch the International Federation of Sport Climbing (IFSC) Lead World Cup Competition.
This was the first IFSC Lead World Cup comp held in the U.S. since it hit Snowbird, Utah in the late 80s.
Despite that, the climbing was awesome. Each competitor attacked their task with composure, grace and power. Austrians ended up bringing home the gold in both the men and women’s division. Jakob Shubert, a six time champ led the men’s field while Johanna Ernst calmly finessed her way higher than any other woman. All in all – a really inspirational night and a proud time for the climbing community of Boulder. If you missed the madness, here are a couple short videos of the winners and some other pics.
