Fans will be treated to a display of flips, grinds and fancy lip tricks by last year's winner, Dayne Brummet, Tyler Hendley, Andy Macdonald and many more.
The fans will pack the grounds of the KIC Jiangwan Sports Centre as they cast their eyes on the gigantic man-made wall that will be the battlefield for the Sport Climbing discipline.
This is a field that has seen Indonesian climbers blazing through year after year.
2008 saw the evergreen Andy Macdonald take home the Skateboard Vert title for a second year running.
Last year's gold medalist, Chad Kagy will not be in Shanghai to defend his title but his close pal Kevin Robinson will be there.
