Jakob Schubert and Janja Garnbret king and queen of Munich

di

The fifth stage of the Bouldering World Cup 2019 was won yesterday by Jakob Schubert and Janja Garnbret in Munich, Germany. Fanny Gibert and Adam Ondra took silver, Mia Krampl and Jan Hojer bronze.

The fifth leg of the Bouldering World Cup 2019 took place last Saturday and Sunday in Munich, Germany, and after Saturday’s qualifications, Sunday morning’s brutally hard women’s semi-final - most certainly the hardest this season and quite possibly the hardest to date - resulted in 18 women finding no tops, Ievgeniia Kazbekova reaching one top and, somewhat unbelievably, Janja Garnbret topping all four.

Despite this conspicuous lack of tops the round proved spectacular thanks to the problems that, for once, seemed to please both athletes and spectators alike. Garnbret’s astounding display of power and technique was replicated in the men’s event by Adam Ondra, the only athlete to top all 4. With the 5000 strong crowd already packed into the Olympiastadion in the early afternoon, the scene was set for a memorable evening showdown.

The night kicked off with the men’s final and an incredibly burly first boulder that foiled everyone - read former World Champion Aleksey Rubtsov, former European Champion Jan Hojer, double World Cup winner Jongwon Chon, Lead World Champion Jakob Schubert and Youth World Champion Anze Peharc - except for last-out Ondra. Dubbed the "master of movement" for good reason, Ondra stuck the fierce dual-texture holds and proceeded to flash the problem with disarming ease, getting his final off to the best start conceivable.

Although everyone topped out on Men’s #, no one managed to stick the crimpy dyno first go. That is, until Ondra came along. He’d wisely changed to stiffer shoes and his flash left him in total joy. And absolute control of the match. Men’s #3 traversed across a slab to reach a powerful rockover and difficult dyno finish. Rubstov’s top third go was extremely impressive, Schubert after struggling tremendously on the delicate slab managed to up the ante and stick it second go, while Ondra… well, he almost slipped off as his hand snapped from a tiny crimp, but somehow he stuck on and pounced to the finishing hold. 

His perfect score of three flashes seemed unbeatable and as the attention shifted to Mens #4, it looked as if the script had been written. First though the crowd rallied behind Peharc as he explored the explosive, unrelentingly physical boulder, then an inspired Schubert managed to hold the gigantic swing before cruising to the top. All of a suddenly the Austrian was in provisional first place with 3 tops and 4 zones and when Jan Hojer waltzed up it first go to secure a place on the podium, many believed Ondra would do the same. Or at least secure a zone for the win. But somehow it just wasn’t to be: somewhat unbelievably, first Chon (who had been so superior in the semis) then Ondra failed to make any headway whatsoever. Schubert grabbed his unexpected victory, his third in the Bouldering World Cup and his 21st World Cup win across all disciplines. Amazing.

Garnbret in the women’s final was the runaway favourite but as first-out Julia Chanourdie made her appearance in her second final in a row, the score among the best 6 was, as always, zero. Not for long though. Women’s #1 yielded to young Ievgeniia Kazbekova who had been so inspirational in the semis, and to Fanny Gibert and Garnbret who both flashed it with ease. After problem #2 Gibert and Garnbret were tied with two tops, just ahead of Mia Krampl who had battled heroically against the holds and the pain in her injured knee. Problem #3 proved slightly easier and was sent after four attempts by Chanourdie, and after 3 attempts by Mia Krampl and Gibert. Then Garnbret being Garnbret made of one of her briefest appearances to date, blasting to the top in less than 40 seconds to take the provisional lead. Her climb was over before it had even begun almost leaving everyone stunned in disbelief. At this point Gibert, who never won a World Cup before, trailed by two attempts and with her second go send of problem #4 meant that with 4 tops and 4 zones in 8 attempts she probably could not have hoped for more. The pressure was now on Garnbret, but before the 20-year-old World Champion came out her teammate Krampl produced one of the most endearing moments of the competition, with her tear-filled battle to the top appreciated to the utmost by the crowd. The onus was now on Garnbret, who needed a top to win. Her fifth consecutive victory this season would be hers if she reached the finishing holds in less than 4 attempts. She needed only one.
