The 3rd leg of the 2011 World Cup Bouldering circuit took place this past weekend in Vienna, Austria. The American contingent grew as Alex Puccio (2nd) and Alex Johnson (t-25th) were joined by Ethan Pringle who finished 16th in his first boudering World Cup appearance in 6 years. Here are the rest of the results:

Not sure what scores like 1t4 4b7 mean? Check out this post from last week where I tried my best to explain the World Cup scoring system.
Some nice photos from the event can be seen on the event’s Facebook page.
The next stop on the World Cup Bouldering circuit is in two weeks in Canmore, Alberta, Canada. The event’s proximity to the U.S. already has a list of more familiar names set to compete.
For a look back on the first two stops of the 2011 season you can check out these excellent videos by Udo Neumann from the 1st stop in Milan and from stop #2 in Log-Draomer, Slovenia.
Seems to have had some pretty brutal problems on the men’s side with scores that low. Or have I read something wrong?
You haven’t. The route setting was too hard, so it all came down to the bonus holds.
Do you think it was do to poor route setting or the problems just didn’t match anybody’s style? I remember some time ago reading on here about a competition here in the states (I think Teva, but I’m not certain) that had far too many dynos and overall had quite a few bad reviews in regards to the setting.
Similar circumstance? Anybody get to see the comp live or on a web feed?
I could give a crap. I wanna know what Adam Ondra is doing!
