The Sheffield Boulder World Cup 2010 was a lovely event taking place in a circus tent on a grassy fairground. Fortunately weather forecasts were wrong and we enjoyed perfect english boulder conditions!
Good news for the last BWC in Munich on the last weekend of July: almost every outcome is still possible with Adam Ondra winning and Kilian Fischhuber not being in the finals for the first time this year! Same is true with the girls where Sheffield winner Chloé Graftiaux, third place Akiyo Noguchi and Anna Stöhr (not in the finals this time) all still can win the Boulder World Cup 2010!
We were not entirely happy with the route setting this time and show longer takes of the actual climbing than on previous Boulder WC reports to make our point. Specifically, we thought the girls' problems were too reach depended and we are not excited about those pro-forma-two-hands-on-something-pseudo-tops (watch for the yellow dihedral and Anna Stöhr falling off three times in the clip!)
If you think differently, please join the discussion about route setting. Also stay tuned for our thorough analysis of the State of the Art of route setting later this year!

On another technical note concerning our Boulder World Cup 2010 reports - they walk a fine line between being fast out and interesting & informative. Yes, lower thirds with competitors names would be nice, but mind you, these clips are edited by me immediately after returning from the very draining comps and are meant to give an inside view into how boulder problems were solved and to show differences among the competitors. You can always look up how the comp went as well as the actual rankings on if you don't know the faces by now.
Stay posted for a Making-of the Boulder WC 2010 reports with lots of background footage after the last World Cup in Munich on too!
