Specifically for the competitions an impressive complex of climbing walls will be built between pavilion N1 and “Druzhba narodov” fountain in VVC ("All-Russia Exhibition Centre"). The maximum height of the climbing walls will be 15 meters and the whole width of the artificial rock will be 36 meters. The walls will be placed on a special stage and covered with a roof in case of bad weather. The scene will be equipped with sound and lighting equipment which will satisfy all requirements for holding competitions and concerts.
Bouldering Bouldering is the most exciting and challenging discipline. Athletes have to climb a number of short but very difficult routes, using not only their physical abilities but also intellectual ones.
There is a limited time to climb each route but athletes can make as many attempts as they want. To win it is necessary to climb the maximum number of routes with minimum attempts.
Climbing without safety equipment, unexpected falls* make bouldering competitions more challenging.
Height limitation (till 4.5m) and gymnastic mats provide the safety* in bouldering.
Speed is one of the most spectacular disciplines in climbing. Athletes have to climb two routes with the height of four-storey building at a maximum speed. It takes the best climbers less than 10 seconds to climb a 14 -meter wall!
The speed final is conducted according to the Olympic system of knockout in pair races.
Passions run high, everything happens so fast that there is no time to correct mistakes. Sportsmen have to be extremely concentrated and accurate and use all their experience to win.
Who will be a winner?“Who is a leader of climbing season-2010 in bouldering? Can anybody compete with Kilian Fischhuber?” Dmitriy Sharafutdinov, world champion, answered those questions in one of his interview: “Presently there are 5 or 6 climbers who can realy compete in each event.These are: Rustam Gelmanov, Kilian Fischhuber, Adam Ondra, Alexey Rubtsov. Unfortunately Salavat Rahmetov is not going to take part in competitions. If he took part in World cup laps he would have very high results too. At the same time the competition in bouldering has increased considerably. The other climbers from the top group of 30 are at approximately the same level. But each of them can make a leap forward at any time and move the leaders aside. It will make bouldering more unpredictable and consequently more interesting for fans.”

Let’s support our athletes!
"Is it important for sportsmen to hear fans’ cheers?" Alexandra Balakireva, winner of World Cup lap in 2009, answered the question: "If it were not for fans’ cheers, why would we climb? Silence is not a good atmosphere for competitions. As for me, fans’ support helps me very much …."
Sport and entertainment program for everybody
The World Cup will be interactive – the spectators will be able not only to watch the competitions but to try their own skills on a wall built especially for them. With the help of experienced trainers both adults and children will be able to climb.
