Results and details after the jump

Results

A heinous 21m high wall with a 14m sustained overhang proved to be a tough challenge for both Men and Women competitors, with no top outs on either side.

The style of the route seemed quite powerful with less volumes and features than the French routes. This difference in style was reflected in the final results:

Men

  1. Jorg Verhoeven(NED) 47+
  2. Jakob Schubert(GER) 46+
  3. Sachi Amma(JPN) 46+

Since Jakob and Sachi tied in finals, the final ranking was determined by their semi finals scores.

Women

  1. Momoka Oda(JPN) 60+
  2. Mina Markovic(SLO) 57+
  3. Johanna Ernst(AUT) 51+

Johanna tied in finals with Evgenia Malamid from Russia and Charlotte Durif of France, so final ranking was determined by count-back to Semi final scores.
