Spaniard  Ramón Julian Puigblanque  is the new Lead World Champion. Jakob Schubert from Austria wins silver, Adam Ondra wins bronze.

Ramón Julian Puigblanque is the new Lead World Champion. His climb this evening was incredible, truly impressive. He climbed without hesitation, straight to the top. The top which Adam Ondra dynoed for in vain, the top which Austrian Jakob Schubert touched but didn’t stick. Puigblanque’s dyno will make history. Those who weren’t in Arco won’t ever fully comprehend what this man did here tonight. The spectators here in Climbing Stadium understood perfectly what he’d just done and rewarded him with a memorable standing ovation. He’s the king of the world and king of Arco. After winning in Aviles in 2007, once again Ramonette is the Lead World Champion! read the competition report
