20 April at 7.45 pm is the time, Klattercentret in Stockholm is the place.
The Tierra Boulder Battle is an invitational bouldering competition where the best from the Nordic countries meet some of the best from the rest of the world.
5 men and 5 women will build one problem each. They get one hour to try each other's problems and then the actual competition will be done world cup final style, meaning 4+ minutes/problem.
That's correct, the format is "after work" which means the problems will be quite a lot harder and more spectacular than in the World Cup.
Total price money: €3600
Alex Puccio (USA), Melissa Le Nevé (FRA), Juliane Wurm (GER), Alizée Dufraisse (FRA), Anja Hodann (SWE)
Nalle Hukkataival (FIN), Chris Webb-Parsons (AUS), Guillaume Glairon Mondet (FRA), Daniel Andersson (SWE), Joakim Berglund (SWE)
The whole thing will be broadcasted live on the web by SVT, Swedish national TV, and I can promise you the quality will be quite a few notches better than we've become used to. Link to the live streaming
