The 2018 adidas ROCKSTARS competition combined climbing with live music and show acts, and is an annual invitation-only competition, with some participants earning a place by competing in national 'Ticket to Rockstars' events across the globe.
Top boulderers from the IFSC circuit shared the stage with some pro/amateur competitors. Alex Puccio (USA) and Keita Watabe (JPN) led after semis. Will Bosi (GBR) finished in 15th place.
The knock-out final round and superfinals were an exciting spectacle, with some entertaining dance moves from Jernej Kruder (SLO) and Jongwon Chon (KOR) before their head-to-head race to complete the superfinal boulder. Miho Nonaka (JPN) beat Alex Puccio (USA) after a closely-fought race, and 2018 World Cup overall winner Jernej Kruder kept ahead of Jongwon Chon from the start thanks to a tactical start position.
