Only Janja Garnbret and Alex Puccio climbed this one | Sunday Sends

Today, to celebrate episode 101 of Sunday Sends, we gonna see a double-top by Janja Garnbret and Alex Puccio. Back in 2017, during the World Cup in Vail, these two beasts were the only ones capable of climbing the powerful and exhausting WQA3.

The day Chon arrived | Sunday Sends

There was a time when Jongwon Chon wasn’t the massive star that he is today. Back in 2014, when he made his first final, many of us were scratching our heads wondering who this young crusher was. Today we gonna review an impressive ascent from that day.

Why didn’t he stop him! | Sunday Sends

Today we gonna see, for the first time, a clearly illegal top. During the 2013 Munich Bouldering World Cup, Russian climber Rustam Gelmanov topped the 3rd semifinal problem after an invalid start. The judge noticed the incorrect start, but for some reason didn’t stop Rustam!

Real Rock-climbing on plastic | Sunday Sends

Although most of us enjoy a good triple dyno and other circus tricks that we often see in modern competition bouldering, some of us have a special place in our hearts for old-school, crimpy, rock-like problems. This week we gonna see Mina Markovic climbing one of those gems from Munich 2013.

A Crimp-Fest for a Crimp Master | Sunday Sends

Today we gonna see Crimp Master Dmitry Sharafutdinov doing his thing: making crimpy, finger-breaking boulders look easy. This week’s ascent showcases Dmitry’s legendary finger strength.

Insecure till the last move | Sunday Sends

Today we gonna see one of Austria’s most prolific climbers in action: Katharina Saurwein. She retired from comps at the end of last season, after almost 2 decades competing internationally. We gonna see her improvise her way up a very insecure, volume-based, slab from the 2016 World Championships.

Follow the red flat holds | Sunday Sends

Today we feature an ascent by Japanese star Rei Sugimoto, to celebrate his bronze medal in Meiringen last week. Sugimoto has been competing internationally for about 14 years (his first final was 8 years ago) and he’s still performing at the highest level (despite the many changes in the sport).

A tricky sequence and a hard pull to the top | Sunday Sends

This week we gonna look back at a hard ascent by Guillaume Glairon-Mondet that took place during the semifinals of the 2014 World Cup in Grindelwald, Switzerland. The last pull to grab the top was very very hard!
