All the big names made it through to the Top-20 semifinal in Wujiang but last weekend winner Manuel Cornu. Jongwon Chon won one group ahead of Adam Ondra both in seven attempts. In the other group, Kai Harada and Meichi Narasaki did all boulders in first try. Jernej Kruder and Gregor Vezonik got the last two spots and that must have been super thrilling especially for Kruder who started first. In the end there were four guys having topped the first four but ended up with just a zone on the last boulder. Last weekend, Manuel Cornu won after having been the last to qualify to the semi and in Moscow, Adam Ondra was #2 after the same situation. One explanation for this is that starting first in the semi means often better conditions and friction as well as longer resting time in between the final. Complete results
