Jule Wurm has had a great day at Hueco Tanks, where she in a single day repeated Barefoot on sacred ground, ~8A+, Dark age, ~8A, and El techo de los tres B, ~8A.
"WHOOP! had a successful bouldering day in Hueco! Did "Barefoot on sacred ground" (8A+), "Dark Age" (8A) and "El techo de los tres B" (8A)! Kinda happy!!"
Jule is perhaps better known as a competition climber where she is currently ranked #5 in the world after one victory, two 5th spots and two 7th spots last season.
She also won the Adidas Rockstars invitational competition in 2013.
In March she is competing in the Tierra Boulder Battle in Stockholm, as is Mina Leslie-Wujastyk who provided Jule with beta for Barefoot on sacred ground.
