German power couple Julianne Wurm and Jan Hojer sent every problem they touched in Silvretta, Austria, on Saturday.

“Sometimes you try hard for days and days without any success, and sometimes everything just clicks,” Hojer wrote on Facebook.

Hojer flashed Golden Gate (V13), his second flash at the grade after El Corazon in Rocklands three years ago. He also ticked Memento (V14), More Shining (V13), Krieger des Lichts (V13), Schattenkrieger (V11) and Zwiederwurzn (V11) and flashed Freerunner (V12)—all in one trip.

Wurm sent her first V13, Charity boulder, which Karoline Sinnhuber climbed last week for her first V13. She also ticked three V11s, X-Ray, Krieger des Lichts and Zwiederwurzn.

Wurm recently announced her retirement from competition climbing, ending her season with the final German bouldering cup of season in Friedrichshafen July 17 and 18. Outside, Wurm has sent three V12s, Pura Vida in Magic Wood, Einfisch Kleinfisch in Switzerlad’s Chironico and Barefoot on Sacred Ground in Hueco Tanks, Texas. After this weekend she has 18 V11 ticks.

Hojer has climbed seven V15 since 2013 and, including Memento, has sent 17 V14s. He won the IFSC World Cup bouldering competition in Vail this June.
