The World Cup wasn’t the only comp taking place last weekend as a small field comprised of a few of America’s strongest boulderers turned out for the Blue Ridge Mountain Sports Boulder Bash at the Dominion Riverrock Sports Festival in Richmond, VA.

This video of Women’s winner Sasha DiGiulian should give you a good sense of the style:
