In the men's event, reigning British champion Andy Earl will be just one of the home-grown boulderers taking on the likes of Russia's Salavat Rakhmetov, the current World champion, as well as World Cup champion Jerome Meyer and reigning European champion Daniel Dulac from France. Those who think bouldering at the highest level is a specialist activity may be surprised to learn that Daniel is an international mountain guide.
The women's event may also see a battle for top slot between Russia and France. Reigning European and World Cup champion Olga Bibik, from Russia, will be challenged by France's Sandrine Levet, five-times World Cup champion.
