Anna Stöhr climbs two 8B boulders at Rocklands

07.08.2013 by Planetmountain

Austrian climber Anna Stöhr has sent two 8B boulder problems at Rocklands, South Africa.

Busy and successful times for Austrian boulderer Anna Stöhr currently in South Africa: at Rocklands she climbed not just one, but two superb 8B problems, namely The Power of One and The Vice. In both cases these are the first female ascents and while the double World Champion needed four days to deal with The Power of One, The Vice gave in on day 3.

As usual the incredible speed of these sends indicates that the current limit of female bouldering - 8B+ set by Japan's Tomoko Ogawa in October 2012 - is well within Stöhr's grasp. And perhaps even, given the right problem, something that can be improved on!
