Hannes Van Duysen continued his form from the qualification in the semi-finals and came third with 144,6 points.

With Yannick Flohé in fourth place and Alex Megos in seventh place, two German climbers are represented in the final. France is also represented in the final with two athletes: Sam Avezou (4) and Mejdi Schalck (7). The last and eighth participant in the final is Adam Ondra.
