Watch: ABS 15 National Championships - Women's Highlights


This year's American Bouldering Series (ABS) Women's National Championship saw impressive showings from a roster of super-strong women, including the usual suspects Alex Puccio, Angie Payne, Alex Johnson, German Juliane Wurm, and youngsters Margo Hayes, Grace McKeehan, and Megan Mascarenas. Despite the tight competition throughout qualifiers, semifinals, and finals, defending champion Puccio and Wurm both topped three problems, which put them in the lead. Wurm beat Puccio in points, but because Wurm is a foreign national, Puccio was able to claim her eighth-straight ABS Nationals title.
