Came on here, expecting a long thread already, but found nothing!

Basic idea is that rather than one of the three disciplines (Speed, Lead and Bouldering), there's a competition involving all three!

What do people think? If the IOC suggested this to IFSC, that's probably a pretty strong hint, but is this the correct way to go about it?

In reply to David Ponting: I think any approach that gets climbing involved in the Olymipcs can only be a good thing given its stark absence currently.

Irrelevent side show IMO. I just hope that the passtime I love doesn't get tarnished with the same brush as this circus .
