• Climbing...
    Climbing... ... is the activity of using one's hands and feet (or indeed any other part of the body) to ascend a steep object. Climbing might be the oldest form of locomotion of Human Beings since it stems from the arboreal locomotion of our ancestors in the trees. Many of the same principles may be applied to climbing on rock or artificial structures. Nowadays it is done both for recreation (to reach an inaccessible place, or for its own enjoyment), as a sport (see the "competition" section of this site) or as part of activities such as maintenance of a structure. Here we deal with Sport Climbing in which the climber uses quickdraws to clip onto permanent bolts in the rock, and thus clips the rope into each quickdraw as she or he climbs up and with the so called Traditional or Clean climbing in which bolts, nuts, hexes and camming devices are employed and taken from the rock after the ascent (hence "clean"). You find most of the other sub- categories of climbing in the corresponding section of this site.

Route Setting at the Boulder World Cup 2010...

... what the competitors think:

The events couldn't be more different: In China (see below) about 10.000 mostly silent spectators, in Slovenia a small, but enthusiastic and well-informed crowd. See for yourself! Next stop: Vienna...

Climbing WC 2009 roundup

It has been a while since the rock climbing world and the competition scene could agree on one champion. In 2009 Adam Ondra climbed the most not only hard but also diverse rock routes and won the World Cup. There is nothing super human or magical about Adam, he just brings, for the time being, the most complete climbing skill set to the table.

It is the nature of human progress that we learn. By watching the clips posted here and elsewhere, we will learn about climbing and therefore improve. Somewhere in the world a talented girl or boy, say 12 years old, who watches Adam, Johanna, Chris and all the other great climbers of our time, will be a far better climber in five years time than those guys ever could be!
So read on, watch those clips, watch them again, discuss them - we will keep on making them, for the future of climbing!
