What a year! We rounded off our year with our very first Route Setting Masterclasses, held at Adrenaline Vault and our brand new ICP Headquarters in Brisbane.
Simon and Katja from 360Holds visited Australia for 2 weeks, teaching everything they knew to route setters from all around Australia.
The Masterclasses were held over two days for each group, and entailed setting problems with different holds, different challenges, and in different groups. Simon and Katja did some setting along the way, and we were stoked to be able to try out some problems set by an IFSC route setter.
It's always great to be able to set with new people in a different environment, and Rob, Bek, Graeme and Mitch all took a lot away from it.
One of the main reasons we created our Headquarters was to be able to give back to the climbing community, to help route setters around Australia to be the best they can be, and to learn with them along the way. We're excited to be holding more Route Setting Masterclasses in the new year. Keep an eye out on our Facebook page for future Masterclass announcements!
