A solid field including the likes of Sachi Amma, Nalle Hukkataival, Chris Webb-Parsons, Alex Puccio, Akiyo Noguchi and Shauna Coxsey will be competing in a unique format that starts with a two boulder final round, with the top three climbers from each gender at that point moving on to a third problem. The top two climbers after the third problem will compete in one last “super final” round where they climb simultaneously on identical problems with the first climber to reach the top getting the victory.
