Speed Climbing Moscow - all about false starts and falls

The start of the Speed World Cup in Moscow put the light on the problem with false start, falls and very little excitement. Out of the 16 female runs, only 2-3 can be said to have great excitement.The biggest problem is the false starts which we actually did see in five cases for the female and four times for the male. What about just adding 0.5 seconds or so for a false start and have them run again?

Climbing is getting into the Olympics and what a big anticlimax if there will be a false start in the finals. Female result board which is actually pretty comic, in spite of Anouck Jaubert's tied world record at 7.32.

No. No adding time but treat a false start like a fall. That’s the only logic.
