This weekend, the elite of the international sports climbing scene once again gathered for a very special kind of competition: over 55 top athletes from more than 17 nations were invited to Adidas Rockstars this year.
The top 6 ladies and men qualified for the grand finale, where they climbed in two rounds to qualify for the Super Final. There they faced each other at the so-called "Superboulder", where they simultaneously climbed an identical route side by side.
