In collaboration with the International Rock Climbing Research Association,
we organised the

 

2nd International Rock Climbing Research Congress
in Pontresina, Switzerland,
from September 15 – 19, 2014.


In total, we welcomed 50 attendees from 12 different countries, presenting recent research in the fields of sports climbing, ice climbing and mountaineering including keynote lectures of L. Vigouroux, T. Fuss, P. Matros, and V. Schöffl. Besides, we got impressive insights into recent expeditions of R. Schäli and U. Hefti. At the same time, the element of actively climbing was not lacking during these days, including the successful ascent of the Piz Palü by seven attendees.
 

Abstracts of the conference are available here (if not being published soon in a special issue of Sports Technology).

See you all again in 2016 latest
