In Isolation - Ep. 2: Meiringen Boulder World Cup 2019 Men's Final ft. Jamie Cassidy

Disappointed to miss out on 2020 IFSC competition action? The season might be up in the air, but UKC will be bringing you In Isolation: a weekly socially-distant chat show which will hopefully go some way to giving you a fill of past-season action, with fond memories of former World Cup events and some famous faces as guests.

This week, IFSC Commentators Charlie Boscoe and Mike Langley join Natalie Berry in interviewing IFSC Chief Routesetter Jamie Cassidy about the 2019 Meiringen men's finals, which included the crack boulder that stumped the Japanese team and Jongwon Chon, but which Adam Ondra famously walked up. Jamie reveals the thinking behind the crack problem, and lets slip that something exciting was planned for Meiringen this year, but unfortunately we might have to wait to see it happen...

Tape up and get involved!
