Cool. Janja is definitely a super talented climber and an amazing season. Worth watching the final of the first WC she competed in. Her team mate Domen Skofic was co commentating, describing how good she was, how she'd even out performed him on one route. She then totally lived up to the hype by gracefully cruising the route in great style. A top moment in the WCs I thought.
La Sportiva Legends sounds good. Is this the first year they've had a women's event? Good to hear Jule will be competing again. But would have also been good if Mascarenas had been invited: another very young, super talented climber who would surely be capable of winning. And no Akiyo? Too many talented women to fit in I suppose.
In reply to stp:
Yes, this is the first year La Sportiva Legends Only is a women's event. Next time will be in 2017.
I asked both Megan and Akiyo. Megan couldn't go this year but wants to come next time and Akiyo was already booked on a TNF-trip to Hueco Tanks.
Saying that, I want to emphasize I'm very happy with the line-up!
I was lucky to be in Kotečnik last Saturday to witness her ascent firsthand. She simply dominated that route with amazing fluidity and control. She pretty much walked over the roof section and did not appear to be even a bit pumped when turning the lip and going for the anchor.
I have seen many 15-16 year-olds climbing 8a/b routes, but Janja is something else, she really is the next level.
