Ice-Climbing Arena for Ice Fans
The 12th Annual Ice Climbing Festival will take place January 7-9, 2011 at the Gemmi
Lodge in Kandersteg in the Bernese Oberland. To kick off the Ice Climbing season, the
international ice climbing scene convenes on this weekend for an open competition,
workshops with world class alpinists, interesting slide-shows and lots of good climbing
on the many ice routes around Kandersteg.
The frozen crag at the Ice-climbing arena worked out perfectly last year for the Contest
and the Workshops. The highlight of the weekend is certainly the ice climbing
competition with international high-level alpinists from all over Europe attending, just
like all the previous years. The qualification routes are graded so that everyone can
participate. On Sunday, top-climbers from the World Cup scene offer workshops for
both beginners and experienced climbers. The proper equipment supplied by the event
sponsors will be on-site for use.
The guest speakers on Friday evening will be the Anthamatten Brothers from Zermatt.
Simon and Samuel are both world-class alpinists and will present their slide-show
'Small Climbers- Big Mountains'.
On Saturday evening, Nico Favresse will rock the
stage with his mandolin, photos and film footage for his show 'Big Wall Jamming'!
With over 500 expected ice climbers, spectators and visitors; the Kandersteg Ice
Climbing Festival is the largest international ice climbing event in the Alps. The
sponsors are Arc'teryx, Black Diamond, La Sportiva, Julbo, Bächli Bergsport, Kandersteg
Tourism, Kandertal Tourism, Town of Kandersteg, as well as 'Vertical' and 'Klettern'
