Austrian Stöhr is the most decorated female IFSC Word Cup boulderer ever and is planning on competing in this year’s circuit, which starts next week.
New Base Line was first climbed by Bernd Zangerl as a V15 and was later bumped down to V14. Stöhr is the eighth women to send V14 and she has climbed at least seven V13s, including the popular Meadowlark Lemon in Red Rocks. Shauna Coxsey sent New Base Line last year, watch her send below.
