Taiwanese top female climber Hung-Ying Lee has taken first place in this year’s Canadian Open Bouldering Championships, the top national level competition in Canada and the same event where Sean McColl took first place by doing this funky maneuver:

Held at the Blocshop bouldering gym in Montreal, the competition took place over two days on March 21st and 22nd. Hung Ying Lee distinguished herself from 45 of Canada’s top women by sending three of the four boulders in finals, while second and third place competitors Elise Sethna and Catherine Laflamme took down two each.

Full video of the event is here while photos from the event can be found via Blocshop’s Facebook page here.
