has been well done and even with a lot of ice on the tower.

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.
But on the other hand we are now too late to change the regulations
because of the following facts:
- some climbers will claim that they have trained with spurs and that the
decision has been too late. Judges will have to either cut with saws spurs
or disqualify competitors that will have spurs on their shoes what could
lead to official complaints. As the existing regulations have been
confirmed on UIAA board the compliant might be sucessfull for the
- as competition ice climbing is becoming an official olympic sport we
must not play with regulations what means they can be changed but on time
as a result of the decission of the Commission and following the legal
- feedback from equipment producers has been very negative and we might
lose some sponsors if we take too fast decisions. That means the decision
not to use spurs can be taken, but on time and legally what gives time
also to equipment manufacturers.
So, dear fellow competitors please understand that not much could be done
for this season. The only thing that could be done is a gentelman
agreement between the best climbers not to use them and to change the
regulations for the next season.
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.
me all the scheduled competitions and events in the season 2007/2008 !
