Way too hard female semi setting

The commentators in Moscow said that they did not think the route setters over cocked the female boulders they in a good way challenged the very best. I totally disagree. The purpose of the qualification and the semi final is not to create a nice challenge for the best climber. It is about getting the Top-20 and the Top-6 in a nice show for the spectators. Further more, these rounds should be fair for the athletes.

Route setting is super hard and it is amazing how often they are spot on. However, there will always be situation when the boulders were too hard. The best way to make them fun to watch and fair for the athletes is to add one more zone.

I disagree with this assessment of the purpose of semifinals. Semi's is supposed to be the round with the hardest boulders in order to separate the field more. Finals is where the "show" happens.

What do you mean by "separating the field more"?
