Saturday 13 April 20.00 CET (19.00 GMT) is Tierra Boulder Battle time at Klättercentret in Stockholm, Sweden.

The TBB is an invitational bouldering competition where 6 of the best female boulderers out there challenge each other on problems they have set themselves.

Previous editions have been won by Alex Puccio, Nalle Hukkataival, Shauna Coxsey and Guillaume Glairon-Mondet. As of this year, this is a ladies-only event, which I believe is rather unique.

This year's line-up:
Alex Puccio, USA
Mina Leslie-Wujastyk, UK
Matilda Söderlund, SWE
Mélissa Le Nevé, FRA
Therese Johansen, NOR
Anja Hodann, SWE

The competitors get 4 hours to set one problem each and then 2 hours to work all of the problems. Then, after almost 48h of rest, it's competition time!

Prize money this year is roughly £4100.

The whole thing will be live on Klättercentret and Tierra. The same team that produces all the WC-comps, i.e Horizon Solutions will be produce the broadcast, including commentary by Dan Finn.

John Ellison from CAC will also be there, as will Sandstones media who will produce another backstage classic!


The Tierra Boulder Battle is sponsored by: Tierra, Klättercentret, Naturkompaniet, Mad Rock, Rokodromo, Brunton, Primus, Psyco Art Holds, Aloma Naprapati and Loop Holds
