Saturday 13 April 20.00 CET (19.00 GMT) is Tierra Boulder Battle time at Klättercentret in Stockholm, Sweden.
The TBB is an invitational bouldering competition where 6 of the best female boulderers out there challenge each other on problems they have set themselves.
Previous editions have been won by Alex Puccio, Nalle Hukkataival, Shauna Coxsey and Guillaume Glairon-Mondet. As of this year, this is a ladies-only event, which I believe is rather unique.
This year's line-up:
Alex Puccio, USA
Mina Leslie-Wujastyk, UK
Matilda Söderlund, SWE
Mélissa Le Nevé, FRA
Therese Johansen, NOR
Anja Hodann, SWE
The competitors get 4 hours to set one problem each and then 2 hours to work all of the problems. Then, after almost 48h of rest, it's competition time!
Prize money this year is roughly £4100.
John Ellison from CAC will also be there, as will Sandstones media who will produce another backstage classic!
