2015 Haiyang Bouldering World Cup – Semifinals

The semifinal round is over in Haiyang. Nathaniel Coleman didn’t make finals and sits in 11th place. The other 3 male climbers in the fight for the Overall title (Ondra, Hojer, Levier) are in finals. No surprises on the female side.

Finalists in Haiyang

Some thoughts:

  • First final for Minoru Nakano, his best results up until today was 11th.
  • Petra Klingler is finally back in finals after being 7th and 8th way too many times.
  • Adam Ondra got the only ascent of the third problem, which was full of very wide and slopey pinches.
  • Really good round for Saurwein, Noguchi and Klingler, who solved all 4 problems in just 5 attempts.
  • The overall title for the men gets more interesting by the minute. Levier, currently in 5th position, is just 40 points away from Coleman (and obviously he will be even closer after the final).

Full results: Men & Women

Finals at 17:00 (UTC+8). They won’t be streamed live, but the IFSC will upload the video tomorrow.
