After more than 18 years of organizing international climbing competitions: a European Championship in 2002, a World Championship in 2003, eleven stages of the World Cup and for the second time a European Championship in 2013, Chamonix welcomes again two Climb World Cup events.
The competitions for this 2018 edition:
- World Cup of Difficulty
- Speed World Cup
Experience and competence with Mont Blanc in the background.
For 18 years, the Chamonix Sports Club has organized one of the most beautiful "climbing" competitions with the support of its climbing section and its 50 volunteers, but also with its numerous public of connoisseurs and enthusiasts present in Chamonix. The experience of the Chamonix Sports Club is now widely recognized thanks to the major international events it organizes in different disciplines such as the Men's Alpine Ski World Cup: Kandahar, the Mont Blanc Marathon races. It is for the French Federation of Mountain and Climbing the guarantee of a success. On an artificial structure, the climbing wall is placed outside, at the foot of Mont Blanc. A shared desire shared by the city of Chamonix and the organizers for all to enjoy the rare and exceptional panorama offered by the Mont-Blanc range. Base camp in Chamonix: guaranteed atmosphere! Chamonix invites the public (over 20,000 people), to come and admire the greatest champions during these three days where the competitions are open access.
