Black Diamond Drytool Cup Brno 2013
The Black Diamond Drytoolcup 2013 takes place on 7/12/2013 at Brno, Czech Republic.
On Saturday 7 December 2013 the city of Brno in the Czech Republic will hold its fourth international dry tooling. This competition serves as a great test before the start of the Ice Climbing World Cup 2014 that has stages in Korea, Romania, Switzerland, France, Italy, and Russia.
Last year Barbara Zwerger from Italy attended the event and told Planetmountain "The routes are set really well on a large wall. There are four or five qualificaton routes and these are climbed using the flash formula, while the final takes place in the evening in front of an enthusiastic crowd of spectators. For those who want to, before the final you can also take part in a speed competition, while after the finals there's the award's ceremony, dinner, prizes and the best 3 lead climbers also receive a cash prize.
You can sleep in the car behind the wall or you can book cheap rooms via the organisation. Last year Angelika Rainer and I trained on the routes the day after the competition, so you can get plenty of climbing done. And if you have more days at your disposal, Prague is less than 2 hours away. In short, there's something for everyone and really is worth going to Brno!"
