Sisu Masters 2016 – Finland vs. USA

sisu_masters_2016

Another comp full of big names! Sisu Masters will take place this Saturday in Helsinki. Nalle Hukkataival, Anthony Gullsten and Ilari Kelloniemi will represent Finland and compete against the USA team: Dave Graham, Jimmy Webb and Daniel Woods.

The competition format is similar to that of La Sportiva Legends Only with one important difference: the problems are set by the climbers. The day before each competitor will prepare his own boulder and then, on Saturday, they will have 3 tries per problem.

The lineup is pretty impressive and since I wouldn’t consider any of the participants “comp climbers” (maybe Gullsten and Woods) this will be a unique opportunity to see rock climbing stars in a competition environment.

The livestream will be available at the event website. The comp starts at 6pm (UTC+3).

Update 2: Steve points out in the comments that the whole livestream is available:
