Monday, 15 April

It seems the route setters, based on the few number of tops in the semi, made some late changes, resulting in too easy boulders in the final.

Futaba Ito 33 JPN Complete results * In order to make it more understandable 8a has started to take out the T and z and just present the score with points.
