Russian, Yana Chereshneva, who was a finalist at Briançon, has repeated Hot Chili X, 8c.
Her compatriot, Evgeny Ovchinikov, finalist in the Arco Worlds champs, did the same, while Belgian ex world champion Muriel Sarkany did Hot chili beans volcano, 8b+.
Swede, Geir Södering also wanted a piece of the action and did the 38,5m (give or take) Qoussaï/les maux de la fin, 8c
