Jongwon Chon is a certified LEGEND!

He has competed in the La Sportiva Legends Only twice, winning in 2016 and finishing 2nd in 2018. Now he is back to reclaim his title.

He has five World Cup victories and has won the overall Boulder World Cup title twice, in 2015 and 2017. He won a Silver medal at the World Championships in Innsbruck 2018.

In 2023 we saw him return to form, resulting in three WC finals.

Jongwon hasn’t climbed outdoors very much, but he has still done several 8C’s.

The old school style is definitely something which should suit his style.

Fingers of steel…
