Munich – Slovenia’s best climber Janja Garnbret was crowned the European champion in lead in Munich on Saturday, her second European champion title after winning one in combined in 2017.

The Rhine river in Germany on Aug. 12 fell below a key waterline level used as a reference for judging its accessibility for shipping.

That level is considered necessary for much of the transport along the river.
