A great comp, and Percy Bishton's final IFSC event apparently. Great co-commenting from Percy in the semis and Alex Khazanov in the men's final.

Looks like Akiyo is back in top form this year, the way she was a few years ago, but now with less competition. Impressive all round, particularly in the semi-final.

Surprised Shauna didn't place higher. Messing about on lumps of rock is obviously a poor substitute for the real thing.

The men's final was another really good one. Despite the lack of ascents it worked really well with that spectacular finish. Fantastic effort by both Tomoa and Gabri on the final problem.

Rarely post on here but that was the best men's final I've seen.  Definitely worth a watch but maybe not the same after reading the spoiler.
