2009 World Youth Climbing Championship Results

The 2009 World Youth Climbing Championships were held this past weekend in Valence, France with many of climbing’s future (and current) stars on display.

Leading the American effort was rising star Julian Bautista who had an impressive 2nd place showing in the Mammut Bouldering Championships last month.  Bautista, who has the unfortunate task of competing against one of the best climbers in the world in Adam Ondra, finished 3rd in his division in a virtual tie with 2nd place finisher Max Rudinger from Austria.  Ondra of course easily took first place, topping out all 4 routes in the competition.

Two other Americans made it to finals in their divisions, Sasha DiGiulian (4th) and Michaela Kiersch (10th), but Bautista was the only American to make it on to the podium.  Don’t be surprised when you are reading about Bautista sending V14 and/or hard 5.14 in the next couple of years.

    so sick that julian was able to get out there for the comp AND take bronze. he scored a little help from the climbing community to make that happen — props to everyone who helped get him there, too.

    George Bush doesn’t care about black people. The international climbing community doesn’t care about Mike Foley.

    18th in Male Juniors.

      Not sure how I missed that one. Thanks for the correction, as odd as it may be worded.
