This is a field that has seen Indonesian climbers blazing through year after year.
No athlete from any other country has got within touching distance of the Indonesians but this year, we might be in for a shock.
2008 winner Evi Neliwaty and silver medalist Etti Hendrawatti will not be in Shanghai this time around, which promises to throw up a podium of new winners.
Hoping to grab some glory will be 2009 bronze medalist, Li Chun Hua, who will attempt to get higher on the podium than her two compatriots, He Cui Fang and He Cui Lian.
Li entered the competition last year with an injured hand but took strength from the local crowd who cheered in unison whenever she stepped up to the wall.
Standing in her way, however, will be a host of European climbers from Ukraine, Russia and Poland.
But it will be Wilda Baco Achmad who struck gold in the 2007 Women's Flash Bouldering in Shanghai who will prove the biggest threat to a year of Chinese domination.
Dinara Irsaliyeva from Kazakhstan will hope for a better showing than her ninth-placed finish last year while Australian climber, Carlie Le Breton will be looking to surprise the rest of the field.
Can the Chinese climbers make it a top three finish to send the Shanghai crowd into a frenzy or will a new star emerge from the unknown?
