That actually seem like a pretty cool format. Not sure how well it works to have men and women climb the same boulder, but the idea of having the pair collaborate to solve the problem is really neat.

They don’t climb the same Boulder. There are 3 sections of two Boulders each. Each time around a team nominates one man to climb a Boulder and one women to climb the other Boulder. I do believe their allowed to give each other beta and other support though. The other major difference is that they only see the Boulder when they go to climb it, not during the observation period before. They also have 5 minutes, instead of 4 minutes, to top the Boulder.

 

The climbing press I follow seemed to like the idea. It was getting good reviews from the climbing journalists there. I haven’t seen much about the athletes opinion though.

From the video description: “20-year-old first-time World Cup participant Kiromal Katibin pulverised the men's Speed world Record at the IFSC Boulder and Speed World Cup in Salt Lake City, Utah, USA. The young Speed specialist, clocked in the unbelievable time of 5.258 seconds – 0.222 seconds better than the previous mark.”
