We announce the tragical news that our friend and ice climbing enthusiast Michael Boos Diehl died on the North Face route on Mt. Robson on July 29th. The cause of the avalanche appeared to be from a large cornice release. He has been the soul of IWC in 2002 and 2003 and he was the one who made the Ice climbing competition rules that are now used around the world.

In memorium of Michael Boos

There will be many competitions and ice events all around the World, but they will not be included in any cup (at least it seems to be so). We have good regulations, nice constructions and a lot of competitors eager to compete, but no European, World or any other international cup. Let's hope it will be better next season...

You can find more information about the World Cup on the web site IWC and download the rules HERE
