Hot conditions made for an exceptionally difficult semi-finals but Shauna qualified for the finals in 2nd place. The final itself took place in the relative coolness of the evening. With Shalagina eliminating herself with injury it was down to just 5 competitors. Noguchi edged out in front but 2nd and 3rd place were all to play for going into the final problem. Shauna got one hand on the final hold but failed to match, giving up third place to Alex Puccio. Gripping stuff! Next stop for Shauna the Melloblocco bouldering festival in Italy.
