Here is a list of upcoming climbing competitions in southwestern Germany for those interested. They are usually low key affairs and fun to watch as a climber, or even with the family. The events are listed below and all take place at the respective DAV gym in each city. You may want to think twice before watching kids climbing comps though, they tend to put us adults to shame =)
- Youth Events:
- 04 March 2018 – Bouldering competition in Tuebingen.[
- 05 May 2018 – Bouldering competition in Stuttgart (at Waldau)
- 09 June 2018 – Lead climbing, Offenburg
- 15-16 Sept. 2018 – Lead & Speed competitions in Heilbronn
Most posts this time of year focus on the same goals or resolutions. My goal from the beginning has been “have fun and see pretty places” and that’s what I’ll continue to do. It’d be nice to advance a few grades, mostly to open more opportunities outdoors if anything, but only as a means to an end. With a full time job and family, I’m happy to get to the gym 3 times a month and hit the outside now and again when the weather is good.
Climb Germany will continue to be here and serve as a resource. New content probably won’t arrive until spring when I can get out to a few crags on my list. If anyone needs help or has questions until then, feel free to contact me here or on Mountain Project!
