Off to Russia!

19 Oct 2008 18:06

Yep, its that time of year again where I have to leave the security of my nice big bouldering wall and head off to work for the IFSC for one of the big international competitions. This time I'm off to set the final round of the bouldering World Cup which will be held on 31st October to the 2nd of November in Moscow. Apparently, there is a common belief amongst many that the life of an IFSC chief routesetter is all fun and glamourous stuff (admitedly the job I had to do in the Reunion islands last year was pretty cushy), but I have a funny feeling that this time things may be slightly less relaxed - no sunny beaches, warm sea, big surf and sun-bathing this time! Lets just hope its not too cold! The last job I need to do before I go is to sort out the dates of this winters Climbing Works bouldering league competitions. Stay tuned for an announcement on the website in the next day or so.
