Chaehyun Seo in cruise control to the top

Tuesday, 21 September

Chaehyun Seo (17) had topped all three routes coming into the final. Being last out she demonstrated climbing perfection and easily surpassed the crux where both Natalia Grossman and Laura Rogora fell at the same move, with Grossman getting the silver after getting there faster. Rogora had lost time having gone for a dynamic move three times but missed it but miraculously manage to hang on while she was falling three times. Fourth was Jessica Pilz who actually skipped hold #37 which Grossman and Rogora controlled and instead touched hold #38 before falling. It should be mentioned again that the route setting in Moscow has been spot on in all rounds for both the men and women in both Boulder and Lead.
