Innsbruck World Championship 2018
The Paraclimbing World Championship in Innsbruck was an amazing experience for me. Just like in past years, the paraclimbing event was organized alongside the traditional climbing disciplines (lead, bouldering and speed), however, this year the organizers (Austria Climbing and IFSC) put a lot of attention to integrating paraclimbing properly into this 10-day celebration of climbing. As a result, the finalists of all paraclimbing categories got to climb on the impressively overhanging lead wall. This seemed as an impossibility to me at first, however, with the help of fixing huge downward hanging objects on the wall (which made the routes less overhanging), it became not only a possibility but a visually appealing and fun 3-D route. I was definitely very excited to have the chance to climb on it!
