Route Setting for the World Cup

I'm not a huge fan of comps or indoor climbing in general, but it's certainly an aspect of the sport that gets a lot of attention. I never really thought about who sets the routes for the mutants that will be climbing in these comps before, so this interview on B3bouldering.com with route setter Chris Danielson was interesting, especially when he says things like: "The third boulder was the least inspiring and a miscalculation from a routesetting perspective." I Imagine there's an insane amount of pressure and nerves when the whole climbing world is paying attention to the holds you selected, and the angle you screwed 'em in at.
