Let the ice climbing party in Rabenstein begin

Ice_ClimbingRabenstein, 28 January 2015 – In two days’ time and after intense preparations the party finally begins. The ice climbing World Championships will be opened with a lively celebration at Piazza delle Terme square in Merano. On Saturday and Sunday competitors climb for the World Championship title at the Eisturm Rabenstein in the Passeiertal valley. The three day long ice climbing party is ready to start.

Everything is prepared for the South Tyrolean ice climbing festival that opens this weekend in Merano and then takes place in Rabenstein in the Passeiertal valley. Route builders Attilio Munari, Loris Manzana and Khim Yong Heon have been working on the tower since Monday, preparing the extremely demanding routes on which the world’s best ice climbers will fight for the World Championships medals.

103 athletes from 19 countries and three different continents will participate in the World Championships in Rabenstein. The village at the foot of the Passo Rombo with its 230 inhabitants will be transformed and acquire an international flair during the largest sporting event of the Passeier season. And with Angelika Rainer from Merano a South Tyrolean will even compete for victory. The 28 year old is not only the reigning champion, she also won the last three World Championships and is hoping for a fourth gold medal. Rainer is not the only competitor from South Tyrol, there is also Barbara Zwerger from Bolzano. For the men, the defending champion is Alexey Tomilov from Russia.
