The International Federation of Sport Climbing (IFSC) International Climbing Series teamed up with the Chinese Mountaineering Association (CMA) to organise the China Open this weekend.
The competition took place at the Guangzhou University Town Sports Centre where athletes are competing in three disciplines.
Jessica Pilz and Yoshiyuki Ogata won the boulder comps with two tops each. The problems were very difficult and only Pilz and Janja Garnbret topped in finals.
