Saturday 1 December it's that time again. La Sportiva Legends Only-time, that is.
This is the invitational, bouldering comp at Klättercentret in Stockholm, to which only the best of the beasts are invited.
The format is "after work", which means the athletes get 2h to try the five problems, ranging in difficulty between ~8A and ~8B/+, the night before the competition.
This year, we're happy to announce chief route setter Shauna Coxsey will be setting for the following line-up:
Adam Ondra, CZE
Dmitry Sharafutdinov, RUS
Jakob Schubert, AUT
Sean McColl, CAN
Guillaume Glairon-Mondet, FRA
That's right, we've got the best ever on rock, three World champs from this year and the winner of the Tierra Boulder Battle.
It'sstill possible to get tickets, so book your flight today!
If you can't make it to Stockholm, Swedish national TV will provide a live feed at SVTplay
