Watch the fourth event of the Austria Climbing Summer Series live from 7:15 p.m. UK time tonight. The finals of the second Lead competition in the series will take place on the legendary outdoor climbing wall in Imst, Austria. Olympic-qualified athletes Jessy Pilz (AUT) and Jakob Schubert (AUT) were the favourites to win in Monday's event and both went home with a win as expected. Will they be able to do the same again tonight?
