Michaela Kiersch: “My best bouldering day ever”

We recently reported on Michaela Kiersch's impressive ticklist in Hueco. At the 28th edition of the Hueco Rock Rodeo, the strong American once again pushed hard and had her most successful bouldering day to date with 10 boulders between 7B+ and 8B.

From February 16th to 18th Hueco tanks After a break of several years, the 28th Hueco Rock Rodeo took place. In this outdoor bouldering competition, the aim is to climb six problems that are as difficult as possible from a defined list of boulders.

Michael Kiersch conquered a pretty impressive number of difficult boulders on Saturday within the 7 hours available (see ticklist below). Crown of Aragorn (8B) was at the top of her list that day.

«Crown of Aragorn was my first 8B many years ago. Since then, I have developed my climbing technique to the point where I can repeat the boulder in a few attempts.”
