Indoor Climbing Centre Opened in Siberia

Indoor Climbing Centre Opened in Siberia

The indoor climbing wall has been recently opened in the building of Tomsk Polytechnic University. It is the only Olympic-level climbing centre in Siberia. 

      The alternative centre is available in Krasnoyarsk, but it is located in the open air. This factor reduces the time for training because of the severe Siberian climate.

      Two years ago the climbing centre was closed for renovation, during which two new routes were built (3 meters in width and 10.5 meters in height). They fully meet the Olympic requirements.

      Speed climbing appeared in Soviet Union in 1947 as a time comopetition (“who is faster') and was defined as type of rock climbing in 1987.
