The Vail Bouldering World Cup at the 2011 Teva Mountain Games has come and gone. For the first time in the 4 years the TMG has hosted this World Cup no Americans stood atop the podium at the end of the comp with Alex Puccio (2nd) and Angie Payne (6th) being the only Americans to even make it to finals. Last year’s winner for the men, Daniel Woods, finished in 11th place with Julian Bautista having the best showing for the American men finishing in 9th.
The comp was won in impressive fashion by a resurgent Kilian Fischhuber who flashed all 4 problems in finals after not even making finals the past two world cups while fellow Austrian Anna Stöhr finished all 4 problems on her way to victory. Here are the rest of the results:

Not sure what scores like 0t 4b9 mean? Check out this post where I tried my best to explain the World Cup scoring system.
Here are a few stories and media that have cropped up since things wrapped up on Saturday. I’ll continue to add to the list as events warrant:
- Women’s Finals Highlights
- Qualifying round wrap up from Petzl
- A breakdown of how each climber fared on the first 2 Finals problems
- A breakdown of how each climber fared on the last 2 Finals problems
- Climbing.com’s report from Finals
- Peter Beal reflects on the comp results and what it means for American climbers
- Final wrap up from Petzl
- Dave Wetmore’s experience at the comp
I was able to watch the livestream of the women’s qualifying round and the beginning of a very laggy men’s qualifying round, but I was unable to watch any of the action on Saturday. If you tuned in to either the IFSC.tv feed or the Rock & Ice feed to watch semi-finals and finals I’d love to hear your feedback in the comments on how things went.
The Bouldering World Cup circuit takes a break for a couple of weeks now before reconvening in Eindhoven, Netherlands the weekend of June 17th.
