The European Bouldering Championships are happening concurrently with the World Cup in Munich.
.
.
The format is unorthodox due to fact that qualifications occur in two group, each of which qualify against different competitors on different boulders.  So the European Champions are actually going to be crowned during the semifinal round.
.
.
So here is what's happening:
▪️All European Championship competitors will qualifying inside the World Cup qualifications
▪️The top 10 climbers from each group will advanced to World Cup semis as per normal, including any European climbers.
▪️Any Europeans advancing to World Cup semis will compete in semis during the allotted World Cup competition time.
▪️An additional number of European climbers, however many is needed to reach 10 European climbers from each qualification group, will advance to a semifinal round for those European climbers only, on the same boulders. .
▪️This additional semis round will occur with just the European climber's NOT advancing to World Cup semis, immediately after World Cup semis have finished. .
▪️The European Championship medals will be presented to the top three athletes regardless of whether the athletes climbed  in the World Cup semi round or the additional Europe only semi round. .
▪️The World Cup Final round will take place with athletes from the World Cup semi round only, and none from the additional European semi round. .

Rope up Canada 🇨🇦! Big News from Evan Hau in Canmore 💪

Can't believe it's done!!! Honour and Glory 5.15a. The Coliseum, Echo Canyon, Canada. The name comes from what gladiators fought for in the Roman Colosseum. What an incredible journey! I started bolting this route 16 months ago last April and tried to get on it as much as possible since then, pretty much 12 out of the last 16 month it's been climbable. In the cold, in the hot, wet, whatever. Today was incredible. Amazing conditions, I felt tired on the warmup so I didn't really think I had a shot, but maybe that took some of the pressure off. I passed my highpoint and then I didn't fall off the final move like I thought I would. STOKED!! About the grade: long term projects like these often don't feel that hard on the actual redpoint go, and it's hard to assign a grade on a route I have totally wired and can rehearse in my sleep so I will stick with my initial thoughts earlier this year that it is on par with the few 15a's I've tried in Europe and definitely harder than any 14d I've been on so I'm going with 15a. This is my first of the grade and a lifetime goal for sure. Photo and belay from Simon Parsons👊. Video to come. @lasportivana @petzl_official #coliseum515project

The 2017 IFSC Boulder World Cup season champions will be crowned this weekend in Munich… and the race a spot on the men’s podium is going down to the wire.
.
.
Jongwon Chon surged ahead with his win in Navi Mumbai, but both Alexey Rubtsov and Keita Watabe are in striking distance of the top spot. Here’s a look at the Top 5.
.
.
1 - Jongwon Chon (KOR) (426)
2 - Alexey Rubtsov (RUS) (372)
2 - Keita Watabe (JPN) (372)
4 - Tomoa Narasaki (JPN) (333)
5 - Kokoro Fujii (JPN) (309)
.
.
Of note, these athletes will have competed in all seven Boulder World Cups and will therefore be able to drop their worst result and put only their best six toward the overall.
.
.
Currently, if the best five scores are put forward, Chon’s lead over Rubtsov shrinks from 54 points to 34 points.
.

World Cup Munich gets going with Qualifications Friday morning. .

The Guinness World Record for pinky pull ups is only 16. I could do 25 the other day and I'm sure there are people out there who could do even more!
