Xiamen Lead World Cup Semis 2016
This would prove difficult for those out early, as the green volume section in the middle of the route appeared highly friction dependent. The conditions improved through the round though, as the sun moved behind the roof and eventually shaded the route.
The women’s route was entirely shaded but with only 26 girls entered in the event and all proceeding to Semis there was some nasty falls from the lower ranked climbers who struggled at World Cup semi level.
The routes did achieve an even split, the only big surprise being series leader Domen Skofic who missed finals with a 9th placed finish.
