Seo, Grossman, Rogora and McArthur top the semi


Tuesday, 21 September

Hamish McArthur was the big sensation in the semi, being the only one topping. The 19-year-old who was #7 in Boulder in Moscow, has previously been #19 as his best in a World Cup but last month, he won both Lead and Boulder in the Youth World Championship also in Russia. Other than that, all the favourites made it to the final but Sasha Lehmann and William Bosi. Complete results

Among the female, the three top-ranked Chaehyon Seo, Natalia Grossman and Laura Rogora topped. The big names that missed qualifying to the final were; Eliska Adamovska, Alex Totkova, Lucka Rakovec, Viktoriia Meshkova and Mia Krampl. Complete results

It should be mentioned that the route setting was once again great as it has been for every round in both Lead and Boulder. On the other hand, the camera work was again poor where they often switched the camera from a climber fighting hard to the other climber checking the route from the ground.

Daniel said that it was extremely frustrating to hear the spectators …
