Thirty five climbers competed in the 2012 Angkor Cup of Climbing competition, at the Siem Reap climbing wall last Sunday.
Climber Sor Seyha won a hotly contested final, just pipping Paul Nagl from Germany and Pan Mony who came third.
For the women, Nheom Chenda came first, In Teny was second, and Lorm Finat was third.
The 35 competitors were mostly young Cambodians still in high-school, including eight female entrants.
Organiser Sem Rorn, chairman of the Cambodian Climbing Federation, says the competition was a great success.
Funded and built by Japanese philanthropists, the Angkor Climbing Wall is free for Cambodian students.
