Graz Euro Youth - Boulder


Sunday, 16 May

The European Bouldering Youth Cup in Graz gathered some 250 participants and overall it was a great success with an almost perfect route setting. All but one boulder were topped and only a handful of climbers did not make any zones. Noteworthy is that Olympian Alberto Gines Lopez was #3 among the juniors after he had won the qualification. Interestingly, ten climbers competed in the final instead of the normal six, based on IFSC semi format. Most impressive was Nikolay Rusev, in the picture, who first won the qualification and then onsighted all four final boulders.
