Lead World Cup - Boulder, Colorado
Photos by Alton Richardson - More than 1,300 people packed into Movement Climbing + Fitness on Sunday, October 9, to watch the Lead World Cup in Boulder, Colorado. Jakob Schubert and Johanna Ernst of Austria won, each having made the clear high point on their respective routes (no one finished the routes). Sachi Amma of Japan and Mina Markovic (who was first going into finals) placed second, followed by Romain Desgranges of France and Momoka Oda of Japan. This is Schubert's sixth consecutive win in a Lead World Cup. Our own Sasha DiGiulian and Matty Hong were the sole Americans to make finals, and each climbed well, placing seventh and sixth, respectively. To read the full report, click here.
