Vail IFSC Bouldering World Cup - 2015

Vail IFSC Bouldering World Cup - 2015


On June 5 and 6, the GoPro Mountain Games in Vail, Colorado, hosted the third World Cup competition of the 2015 season, the only World Cup competition in the United States. Despite rainy conditions, over 2,000 people stood in the wet grass to watch, while thousands more tuned into the IFSC’s live streaming online. The event brought out the world’s best competition boulders, including Anna Stöhr of Austria, German powerhouse Jan Hojer and Czech favorite Adam Ondra, to compete against American’s strongest climbers. Seventeen-year-old American Megan Mascarenas surprised the crowd by winning her first World Cup gold medal, and World Cup rookie Nathaniel Coleman of Murray, Utah, secured his second World Cup silver medal in two weeks.
