Few would have bet against her, but to win so convincingly with the weight of expectation on her shoulders proved that Garnbret truly is a top-class athlete in a league of her own. 

Reel Rock released a short video this week profiling the Garnbret and her phenomenal rise to the top, adapted from their feature film Janja Garnbret - The Perfect Season, now playing as part of their Reel Rock 15 film selection.

To say she is head and shoulders above the competition feels like understatement. Amazing!

After winning most of the the women’s events, I’d like to see how Janja would fare on the men’s competition boulders/routes.

Nice article as most top comp climbers will say they train hard and started young it may be the training environment? Encouraging and pushing each other to higher and higher standards?

I'm tempted to say first and foremost natural climbing talent / technical ability, similar to what I would say for Ondra outdoors. Watching her on some of these boulder problems reminds me of Dawes. 

Add to that a love of training, the desire to win and the ability to perform consistently, under pressure.
