Spurs will be allowed in season 2006/7
Spurs or no spurs
There has been a debate about using or not using the spurs
in IWC 2006/7. The fact is that modern climbers no longer use spurs even
for the most difficult routes and that it is easier to make good routes
for competition if spurs are not allowed.
Meeting Courmayeur 27th May 2006
Different topich have been discussed, most of the members of the UIAA Commission, Organizers, local representatives and climbers were present. Workgroups for different topics have been formed and it has been decided that all the organizers wishing to organize a World cup event must first prove their ability by organizing an international event according to all UIAA regulations. So this season we'll only have 3 events, but it is sure that they will be on high level, well organized, with good routes and judged upon same rules.
