Saturday night's spectacular La Sportiva Legends Only in front of 500 people at Klättercentret in Stockholm was in many ways the perfect show with the best climbers in the world performing at their best in a show that was almost too dramatic.
In the end Adam Ondra came out victorious ahead of Dmitry Sharafutdinov, Paul Robinson, Daniel Woods and Andy Gullsten in a very close competition.
The format was a lot different compared to your normal WC.
- The competitors worked the problems for 2h the day before the comp
- No isolation
- 3+ minutes to complete every problem
- HARD problems between ~8A and hard 8B
