Garnbret continues perfect season, eyeing two more titles


While this is the second bouldering World Cup title for Garnbret after 2017, she also hopes to win the sixth and final bouldering event of the season in Vail, Colorado in June to become the first ever climber with a perfect bouldering record.

"Now that I've won for the third time in Munich, I also want to win in Vail. I know it will be very hard, since I've so far never even made into the final in Vail," the winner of the 2018 Slovenian Athlete of the Year Award said.

Garnbret, who also won the lead climbing and combined World Cup titles in the last three years, is a serious candidate for two more milestone achievements this season.

The lead season starts in July and she could well become the first ever climber with four straight lead titles as well as the first ever with three World Cup titles in a single season.

Garnbret was crowned bouldering champion at the Climbing World Championships in Innsbruck, Austria, last September, while also taking gold in combined and silver in lead.
