In collaboration with the International Rock Climbing Research Association,
2nd International Rock Climbing Research Congress
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).
The organizers would like to thank all supporters, sponsors, speakers, and attendees
