© Moon

The 2019 MoonBoard Masters competition came to a head on Saturday 30 November with the broadcast of the men's and women's global finals. 12 climbers will compete on MoonBoards around the world on problems they set themselves.

Originally launched with an Open Qualifier round earlier in the season, the new MoonBoard Masters format brought climbers from all corners of the globe together in the ultimate board climbing competition. Climbers faced a series of 40-degree problems ranging from 6A+ to forearm pumping 7C+. From the global rankings of the Open Qualifier, 7 female and 5 male finalists were selected to compete in the Grand Final.

Representing the UK, Germany, Switzerland, Italy, Russia, Japan, Singapore, and Canada, the Grand Final climbers battle it out on each other's problems from their local MoonBoard. Points are awarded based on how high they climb the problem, with bonuses awarded for completion, and a flash.
