An annual invitation only event, La Spotiva 2015 comprised just five women – all of whom had trophies back home to prove how good they are at climbing. Unlike many bouldering comps, La Sportiva Legends is a ‘worked’ comp, meaning that the competitors work the blocs prior to the final competition.
Despite their huge experience at comps, both Anna Stohr and Jule Wurm were almost totally shut down.
