Wujiang Men's Lead Finals Replay available Tuesday on YouTube

Replay of the Men's Lead Finals from Wujiang will be available today on YouTube.

Due to an unreliable Internet connection on-site, we were not able to stream the second half of Sunday's finals live. Our TV crew arrives in Japan today and will upload footage of the event when they access a more stable connection.

We thank you for your patience and understanding; we always do our best to make the webcasting of events the best possible, but sometimes adverse conditions can make it difficult.

Wujiang Streaming Technical Difficulties

Climbing fans, due to an unreliable Internet connection in Wujiang, the live streaming may be unstable for tomorrow's World Cup competitions.

Our team will attempt to stream both to YouTube and to our backup stream (via the "click here if you don't have access to YouTube" link on the homepage), but the quality may be sub-par and the stream may cut out at times. If that is the case, the full competitions will be uploaded to YouTube as soon as our team gets a more reliable connection in Japan.

Given the large time change for our fans in Europe and North America, we wanted to warn you before you wake up in the middle of the night to watch.
