About the Competition

La Sportiva Legends Only is the competition where the best competition boulderers meet the best on rock. The best and most experienced redpoint bouldering route setting team on the planet, lead by Robert Rundin and Joakim Berglund and assisted by Stefan Eklund, Kilian Fischhuber and Sean McColl, created five extraordinarily spectacular problems which the athletes had plenty of time to work on a couple of days prior to the event. The level of difficulty, ~8A+ – 8B+, is as always considerably higher than in any other climbing competition.
