Saturday 25 Nov, it's once again time for the La Sportiva Legends Only invitational at Klättercentret in Stockholm, Sweden. This year it's once again an all female line-up where World #1 Shauna Coxsey will take on Stasa Gejo, Petra Klingler, Mélissa Lé Nevé, Katja Kadic and Fanny Gibert.

The Legends only is a redpoint competition and the competitors will have three hours to practice four of the problems on Thursday afternoon. New for this year is that the fifth problem will be secret and be climbed true onsight style, i.e no viewing.

Yesterday's practice session looked really promising and I'm sure we can look forward to a great show!

The competition will start at 8pm CET (7pm in the UK) and as always there'll be live streams on facebook (La Sportiva, Petzl, Unilad, Klattercentret) as well as on youtube.

I thought it was fairly sure Shauna would win before the comp even started. She's ranked no. 1 and the others were 5, 6, 7, 9 and Melissa is unranked as she didn't compete in the IFSC events this year. The ranking...
I'd like to add a dissenting voice with the reminder that if you don't want to know anything, then it is your responsibility to stay away from those bits of the internet or any other news media that is likely to report...
