The competition route was very universal. Set up of combination of ice, rock and holds, so all types of everything. Harder difficulty with longer time limit, that probably suites me.
The Ice festival really lives, it is excelent to meet and climb together with the legends as Will Gadd, Emily Harrington and aothers."
