Bronx Rock Invitational 2009 Empfehlung

geschrieben von 

Recipe for a fantastic boulder contest:

Invite 12 very different climbers, all with various backgrounds, 6 girls and 6 boys. Have a cool venue ready, with clean structures that allow for creative route setting that challenge all skills for bouldering. Let them pick straws, one girl and one boy share one section on your structure. Leave it open to them if or if not to coorporate, just ask them to care for each others safety. Let them put up problems, apply as few rules as possible, provide the girls with 2 additional (bad!) holds to compensate for reach etc. Do the ranking / prize thing Melloblocco style, each problem is worth x €, divided through the ascendonistas so nobody returns empty handed. After them setting for one hour, do something for your audience, get into the climber's head, ask them for the idea behind their problem, some might have one, some not, the crowd loves world class climbers talk about climbing!

 

Than it is bouldering time!

Your job is done, from now on the thing flows by itself! The climbers support each other, the vibe is friendly and the air electric. Some unexpected turns are to be expected, boys get grey hair over "easy" girl problems, girls cheat by solving macho moves with girl technique. More grey hair for the boys! After 90 minutes everybody is wasted beyond believe and you have clear, undisputed winners. (Jule & Jonas in this case) Everybody is happy.

Trust me, we did it three times now. It is called BRONX ROCK INVITATIONAL! (read here what happened 2007 and 2008)

 

 

The BRI is still the only format that gives the crucial element of any comp back into the hands of the climbers. In 2007 we invited eight of the strongest, but very different German climbers to put up their own problems and climb them afterwards. Last year we had a tremendous event with the eight invited women from all over the world. Now, this year we feel that we matured enough to invite both men and women and have them compete at the same problems! As the last two years we would like to have very different climbers here, not only your usual competition suspects.

Keep it simple, stupid!

We are trying to make the format as simple to understand as possible and still allow the girls and boys to compete on an equal basis.

Each competitor will be given a part of the artificial structure to put up his or her problem with an identical set of holds. We allow 60 minutes for that. The girls will get 10 more minutes to put 2 more golden “joker holds” into the male problem of their respective area where they see fit to compensate for lack of reach for example.
During the actual 90 minutes comp, everybody climbs as many problems as possible, the own problem being of course of most importance. Every problem is worth € 250. This money will be split like this:
  • one point for a boy doing a girl problem 2 points for a girl doing a girl problem,
  • 2 points for a boy doing a boy problem
  • 2 points for a girl doing a boy problem with the 2 joker holds
  • 4 points for a girl doing a boy problem without the 2 joker holds! Finally, a special prize for the girl that put up a problem no boy can climb! (Unlikely you say? – well, Angelica Lind’s problem #1 last year never saw a second ascent!)
Stay tuned for more about the Bronx Rock Inviational 2009 soon, or better even, come by, August 15, 16:00 CET HERE! If you can't make it to Cologne, follow our "live" tweet.

Interview
Was erwartest Du von BRONX ROCK Invitational? /
What do you expect of BRONX ROCK Invitational?

Many interesting boulder problems, a new experience, and a lot of fun climbing with Daniel ;) and some new interesting people that I will meet. By the way – in polish we call “bronx” a good beer so… ;)

Hast du dir irgendwas Spezielles für das Schrauben vorgenommen? /
Do you have special plans for the screwing?

Hmmm… Special? Not yet :) but looking at where the BRONX ROCK Invitational will take place this year, I wouldn’t like to “screw” a lot… I would like to find the possibility to climb these bouldering cubes with as few extra climbing holds as possible.

Wie sieht der perfekte Boulder aus? Describe the perfect boulderproblem.
The one that only I can climb ;) No, I’m joking - frankly speaking, I’m not a very competitive person. So perfect boulder… Hard to imagine only one. Generally, in my opinion, a really good boulder cannot be long and each of his moves should be very difficult. But the boulders that I enjoy the most are these ones which are hard to resolve or which require dynamics, coordination or flexibility. And I love climbing on all formations, or volumes (as for climbing on artificial wall). The funny thing is that I’m not very good at it all :)

Wo siehst Du Möglichkeiten zur Weiterentwicklung des Kletterns? /
Where do you see possibilities for the development of climbing?

If we are talking about the development of the popularity of climbing as a sport: in placing a climbing hero in the most-watched TV series ;) We had once in Poland last year or 2 years ago and since then all polish climbing gyms are FULL and the general interest in climbing has increased a lot a lot.

Was würdest Du an deinem Sport ändern wollen?/
What part of your sport would you like to change?

Only the fact that sometimes you cannot climb when you really want to and need to, when for example the weather in rocks is not good or when your skin is gone (I hate it) or when you get contusions (that's the worst!). Apart of this, my love for climbing is unconditional ;)

Was macht für dich Klettern aus, was gibt es dir? /
What does climbing mean to you?

Oh… :) so much!!! I can say that it’s my life. Apart from my family and my friends, that is the most important thing for me. On the one hand climbing is something very personal to me, and the on the other hand it’s something that I want and like to share with the others. Climbing move, nature, and very rich relationships… - that’s my “climbing”

Stärken und Schwächen beim Klettern? /
Yours strengths and weaknesses in climbing?

Stärken/ Strengths: inexhaustible motivation, crimps, quite good stamina
Schwächen/ Weaknesses: slopers, orientation in roofs :), coordination, climbing on formations and sometimes just “thinking” ;)

Ich glaube an/ I believe in

Oh… again “so much”!!! Maybe I’m too naïve... or just optimistic. But most of all: in family, climbing all your live and power of music.

Was inspiriert dich?/ What inspires you?
Human relationships, human passions, children’s openness to the world and instrumental music

Schlaue Ratschläge? Any advice for anything?
To always try to find something positive out of every experience. And to travel and climb a lot a lot everywhere, especially outside!

Top 3
Helden/ Heroes
I don’t really have any special one (or 3 :)), but talking about the climbers whose climbing impresses me, I have to mention about Favresse brothers, Adam Pustelnik and Lynn Hill.

1. piano of Keith Jarrett

Beschäftigungen neben dem Klettern/

Sonnenliebend, etwas chaotisch und meistens gut gelaunt

...so charakterisiert sich das starke Frollein aus der Fränggischen selbst.
Was macht man, wenn man als Vollblut-Kletterin möglichst oft an den Fels kommen will und nebenbei auch noch "was gescheites im Leben" machen will: Man geht nach Bayreuth zum Studieren und fährt jede freie Minute raus an die Felsen.
Einziger limitierender Faktor ist bei ihr meist die Haut und (der wahrscheinlich einzige Nachteil der Fränkischen:) das Wetter, denn die Motivation ist bei ihr stets 120-prozentig. Am Problem mit der Haut arbeitet Doro aber, denn als angehende Biochemikerin sollte sich doch ein Mittelchen gegen cutis abscederis boulderensis (lat: Hautschwund) finden lassen...

Ordentlich Haut musste Dorothea bei ihren Projekte aber auch mitbringen: Egal ob bei SMS (8a+) oder Shining (FB 8A) -- für Doro gibt es nichts Besseres, als das Gefühl, nach Entschlüsselung der Züge das Ding durchzusteigen und dann mit einem Schub Glückshormone belohnt zu werden -- wer sie also mal wieder grinsend an der Uni sieht: Frag`sie nach ihrem letzten Wochenende...

Auch für Dorothea ist Klettern mehr als das Anziehen von möglichst kleinen Griffen: Das Reisen, das Zusammensein mit anderen Felsbegeisterten aus aller Welt und die sportliche Betätigung in freier Wildbahn machen für sie den Reiz des Kletterns aus -- all das konnte Dorothea in geballter Form bei ihrem siebenmonatigen Worldtrip mit ihren Freunden Peter, Andreas und Florian auskosten -- auch da gab es für Dorothea oft die angesprochene Überdosis Glückshormone nach dem erfolgreichen Durchstieg -- vor allem, als sie den Ultraklassiker King Kobra (V8) im Yosemite in den letzten Tagen der Kletterweltreise knacken konnte...

Interview with Dave, Ceuze 2007
update August 13, 12:00

Markus is the new Dave!

Since nobody honestly would recommend bouldering on a semi-broken foot that hurts even when walking, we agreed to not put the stress on Dave. Instead the incredibly talented and versatile Markus Jung (watch him deep water soloing above the Verdon here) completes our list of world class climbers. Markus is a rock climber first and foremost but is notorious for cameo appearances at various competitions, where he usually shocks the established comp climbers. Markus is serving his civil service year in the Frankenjura and what we hear from his quick ascents of 8c’s and above, is in excellent shape for Saturday!

update August 12, 17:00
When I told Dave about the concept in 2007, he was imediately psyched and interested in participating.
On Juli 9 though he sent me the following message with some bad news:

Hey man,
I would love to come. The reason I have not responded until now is I almost broke my foot 37 days ago, and it is still healing and considerably hurt. I would LOVE to come, I just have to see if I can even climb in the first place by that date! So, I hope I can affirm to you maybe next week, after my next osteo apt, wether or not its game on. As for the moment, man, life has been really hard on the level of this injury.
sorry to be pain in the ass....
fuerza
dave


Yesterday Daniel Jung, who has been climbing with Dave in Ceuze, told me that Dave is only toperoping and still in pain with his foot. When I came back today from our meeting @ Bronx Rock, Dave had send me the following message:

Hey man, I am super bummed my foot is still fucked, it pissed me off ... I hope you well man and you aren't pissed, I would really love to participate.
Cheers buddy

Doesn't sound good! We havn't talked yet, but once we have be sure to hear it here first! Fingers crossed!

Was erwartest Du von BRONX ROCK Invitational? /
What do you expect of BRONX ROCK Invitational?

Dass es bestimmt sehr anstrengend wird zu schrauben ohne Akkuschrauber. Und natürlich viel Spaß!

Hast du dir irgendwas Spezielles für das Schrauben vorgenommen? /
Do you have special plans for the screwing?

Ne, das kommt spontan je nach dem, was ich für ne Wand bekomme und was ich für Griffe habe. Diesmal soll es aber kurz und knackig wirden!!

Wie sieht der perfekte Boulder aus? Describe the perfect boulderproblem.
Es sollte auf jeden Fall optisch eine schöne Linie sein. Mit kleinen Tritten, dynamischen Zügen an kleinen kräftigen Griffen. Dabei ist klar, dass die Griffe alle total bequem sind. Der Blog muss min. 4 Meter hoch sein. Und auf jeden Fall so, dass ich mir bis zum Durchstieg nicht vorstellen kann, dass es eigentlich für mich möglich ist. Es muss also eine riesen Überraschung für mich sein, wenn´s dann klappt.

Wo siehst Du Möglichkeiten zur Weiterentwicklung des Kletterns? /
Where do you see possibilities for the development of climbing?

Gripcreme, klettern ohne feuchte Finger und Cuts, damit man bedingungsunabhängiger klettern kann.

Was würdest Du an deinem Sport ändern wollen?/
Nichts! Immer noch wie beim letzten Mal: Beim Felsklettern ist alles so, wie es ist und wie es sein soll. Der beste Kletterer ist nämlich der, der sich am besten anpassen kann. Es gibt keine Scheiß-Gebiete, keine Scheiß-Routen und keine Scheiß-Griffe, es gibt aber Scheiß-Kletterer. Das sind nämlich die, die Griffe und Routen beschimpfen wenn se rausfallen;

Was macht für dich Klettern aus, was gibt es dir? /
What does climbing mean to you?

In der Natur mit der Natur spielen. Neues entdecken, sich am Limit bewegen. Sich selbst überraschen und für sich Unmögliches einfach machen.

Stärken und Schwächen beim Klettern? /
Yours strengths and weaknesses in climbing?


Stärken/ Strengths: Motivation zum Klettern
Schwächen/ Weaknesses: Alles was sich bei Temperaturen über 20°C abspielt.

Was inspiriert dich?/ What inspires you?

Schöner Fels, schöne Linien, neu Bewegungen und das ganze Kletterleben.

Schlaue Ratschläge? Any advice for anything?
Nie Chippen!!!
Rauchen ist doof.
Klettergebiete und Felsen sauber halten.

Und für eure Veranstaltung: für alle Teilnehmer bitte ein Akkuschrauber...
