Mammut Boulder Cup 2nd place

On the weekend i competed in the Austrian Boulder comp held in Innsbruck.
The comp was held over two days, the first day was the qualification for the semi finals where only 20 competitors would progress to the semis. I qualified in 4th place. The next day was the semi finals where only 6 guys would go into the finals, I qualified in 3rd place securing a place in the finals. Next up the Finals, the market place where the finals where held was packed out with a couple thousand spectators watching on. The field in the finals was strong and included David Lama, Killian fishuber, Zlu Haller, Emi moosburger, tom nyer and me. we had 4 boulder problems to try and complete and they where really great to climb on and great for the crowd to watch. I topped out on 3 out of 4 problems but that was enough to take out 2nd place in the comp so I am really happy with how I went. I hope i can peform well in the next comp in Grindelwald in Switzerland.
