Highlights of the Adidas Rockstars 2016 Semifinals

Adidas Rockstars 2016 is one of this year’s biggest bouldering events. Hosted at the Porsche-Arena in Stuttgart, Germany  – this year the route setting has been incredible, with a massive mix up of different styles and some very hard problems for both the men’s and women’s competition.

This video features Akiyo Noguchi, Kokoro Fujii, and Miho Nanaka of Japan, Nikola Petrov of Bulgaria, Janja Garnbret of Slovenia again killing it, Jongwon Chon of Korea, Sergii Topishko of Ukraine, Lean Crane of Great Britain, and Rustam Gelmanov of Russia.

Again there were some super hard routes – W1 was not topped out by any competitor, W2 was incredibly hard and technical, and M3 with a very awkward set of moves.

A big shout out to OnBouldering.com for the incredible video and the great on-going coverage of the big and small bouldering and climbing events around the world. You can support OnBouldering on their patreon here.
