Competition catch-up: USA, Japan and Ukraine

Just because the IFSC Comps are over it doesn’t mean that there are no big bouldering comps left. Several national-level events are taking place along with the Asian Continental Championships. Let’s do some catch-up!

This first move pissed off a lot of people! | Sunday Sends

This week we gonna review an ascent of a very frustrating problem. The first qualifying boulder in Log Dragomer 2013 featured a very annoying start. Climbers spent up to 18 tries to top this line. Swiss star Cedric Lachat managed to get the top on his 10th attempt, let’s see it!

She didn’t stop until she found the way! | Sunday Sends

Today we gonna see former US Champion and World Cup winner Megan Mascarenas giving a very long and tiring try to a qualifying boulder from the 2016 World Cup in Meiringen. She flashed the problem but it took her about a minute and a half to get to the top. An example of determination and […]

It doesn’t get much flatter than this! | Sunday Sends

Today we celebrate Jan Hojer’s ascent of Es Pontas with footage from a radically different problem: a super flat and technical slab from the 2015 World Cup in Munich. It only got two tops (out of 59 climbers) but Jan made it look pretty easy!

That’s not how you are supposed to climb! | Sunday Sends

This Sunday we gonna see one of the most unorthodox climbers in the international competition circuit, World Champion Tomoa Narasaki. He has his own way of doing things and sometimes that includes his own way of solving mantles!

Miho Nonaka and Jernej Kruder win Adidas Rockstars 2018

The final of Adidas Rockstars has been, as expected, a great show. The problems were significantly harder than in the semis but they kept the dynamic style. Miho Nonaka won her first Adidas Rockstars title in the super final against Alex Puccio and Jernej Kruder secured his second title racing against Jongwon Chon (who’s been […]
