International UIAGM Mountain Guides Championship, Munich
Cristoph Hainz wins for sixth year running ahead of Leonardo Di Marino and Massimo Bal
|The sixth International UIAGM Mountain Guides Championship took place on one of the largest indoor climbing walls in Munich on 14-15 October. Entrants from Italy, Germany, Austria and Switzerland competed on routes set by Stefan FÃ¼rst, and the competition was won, for the sixth year running, by the Italian Cristoph Hainz. |
On Saturday the Mountain Guides, divided according to age into 5 categories, competed on 3 routes and all qualified for Sunday's Semi-final. This narrowed the field further for the two on-sight routes for the Final.
Cristoph Hainz won the competition just ahead of the other Italians Leonardo Di Marino and Massimo Bal, joint second-equal. In the Final Hainz managed to dyno through a bouldery crux and touch a hold, while both Di Marino and Bal failed to touch it.
