Commission meeting in Bern July 2010
Pavel Shabalin became the president of the Commission for Competition ice climbing. Commision's goal is to attend Sochi Olympic games as demonstration sport in 2014. To reach this goal, our sport must become more dynamic. As a consequence, the time for routes at lead will have to be shortened till 2014, so climbers will be forced to climb fast. Of course nobody likes it, but we would all like to become Olympic sport!
Two attempts are allowed for qualification round at lead events and three at single route speed events!
It is only allowed to use hands on ice axes (no arms, elbows...)
