At the end of the Swiss Climbing Cup 2021, the lead climbing championship was awarded yesterday in the Griffig climbing hall in Uster. Last year's winner Dylan Chuat successfully defended his title among the elite men. Michelle Hulliger won the women's gold medal.

62 athletes started yesterday in the fifth and final competition of the SportXX Swiss Climbing Cup 2021. For the national season finale, not only the Swiss champions in the supreme discipline of climbing were chosen, but also the most successful athletes of the entire season.

In the finals of the best six women, Michelle Hulliger (Ramsei BE) was the only one to achieve the top grip and thus climbed confidently to this year's championship title. Andrea Kümin (Winkel ZH) and Liv Egli (Hünibach BE) completed the podium on ranks 2 and 3.
