Innsbruck Welcomes The World’s Best Bouldering Athletes

Top-class competition climbers will compete at Marktplatz Innsbruck at the occasion of popular Mammut Blockmaster competition, the IFSC Bouldering World Cup series from May 15th-17th, 2014. Headed by Austria's high flyers Anna Stöhr, Kilian Fischhuber and Jakob Schubert, the leading boulder athletes are meeting at the heart of the Nordkette mountains to battle for World Cup points. But that's not all. Hobby climbers are welcomed to join the Boulder Jam; a climbing event opened for everyone. Set in relaxed atmosphere of the city, this fixture can't be missed.

The Mammut Blocmaster Climbing Festival

For a decade the Mammut Blocmaster Climbing Festival has assembled hobby climbers, junior climbers, pro climbers and uninitiated alike in Innsbruck, Austria. With the first IFSC Bouldering World Cup in 2012, the European first "urban" bouldering festival has set a high standard. The event seems to be a prerequisite for a top-class competition around: After all, 9.000 enthusiastic fans and spectators attended the Tyrol's biggest climbing party in 2013!

Nestled in impressive panorama of the Nordkette mountains and within a stone's throw from the Golden Roof ("Goldenes Dachl"), the Marktplatz in Innsbruck has always been the vibrant centre of the Tyrolean capital. After more than successful World Cup premiere in previous years, the Marktplatz will once again evolve into a spectacular climbing stage this May. Organizing team behind Reini Scherer and Andreas Würtele have worked hard to built a superb climbing arena: More than 150 square kilometers of climbing surface with 30 meters long climbing wall guarantee difficult boulder to conquer. In case of unfavorable weather, the spectators can hide under a large tent that spread all over the place; no matter what the weather conditions might be, the competition will go on!
