The professionalization of the climbing industry is progressing. Above all, the upswing in indoor climbing calls for an expert examination of a wide variety of aspects on the subject.
Route Setter is the new business magazine dedicated entirely to the indoor climbing industry. Our goal as publishers of the magazine is to create a medium to inform, stimulate discussions and provide inspiration.
The focus of the first issue is on the topic of today's requirements for modern and contemporary climbing gym management and the development of route setting. Experts such as Christian Popien (climbing gym operator and consultant for artificial climbing facilities), Peter Zeidelhack (DAV federal teaching team for route setting, operations manager DAV climbing centre Munich) and Tom Brenzinger (managing director and owner of Boulders- und Kletterhallenservice) share their knowledge about these topics. A guest article by Patrick Matros (Kraftfactory) and an exclusive interview with the former Austrian national coach Ingo Filzwieser examine the development of training and training facilities in bouldering gyms. The internationally renowned presenter and insider Liam Lonsdale takes a closer look at the development and importance of bouldering events and competitions in gyms.
