In early October, a bunch of world class boulderers gathered in Helsinki for Finlands first international invitational bouldering competition - The Sisu Masters 2013.
The line-up featured international stars as well as Finland's best:
Anna Stöhr, AUT
Mélissa Le Nevé, FRA
Eevi Jaakkola, FIN
AnnaLiina Laitinen. FIN
Kilian Fischhuber, AUT
David Graham, USA
Nalle Hukkataival, FIN
Anthony Gullsten, FIN
The format used was the "build your own problem", meaning exactly that
- Everyone sets one problem
- The climbers work the problems
Well, if you don't know or have forgotten, I guess you are going to have to watch the video!
Next week, both winners visit Stockholm for the La Sportiva Legends Only. Mélissa is setting and Nalle is competing.
