The last competition and the highlight of the year took place in Paris. It was my first time I spent time in that beautiful city. The competition area was huge, there was place for 8000 people – and it was sold out.

We arrived on Tuesday afternoon in hot and humid Paris. The next day girls had their lead and the men had their boulder qualifications. The day after it was my turn. The team of our boulder-girls consisted of Anna Stöhr, Katha Saurwein, Berit Schwaiger, Johanna Färber and me.
I felt pretty tired the whole time (already during trainings before the comp) and I tried to give my best. But it was unfortunately not enough to reach semis. I was pretty close in 2 other boulders to reach the top – which would be easily enough for a semiplace. But nope. Not this time. Again.

I really enjoyed the season, although it was really enduring and a lot of travelling. Hope to be allowed to climb the whole circuit again next year. Now it’s time for a little break, to heal my hurting shoulder (YESSSS AGAIN!) and I’m pretty sure you’ll meet me in „Magic Wood“ or „Silvretta“ during autumn 😉 Psyche is high for some real rock and my projects!
