IFSC European Bouldering Youth Cup, Bulgaria. Photos.

Leg one of the IFSC European Bouldering Youth Cup, took place in Sofia, Bulgaria over the weekend of 29 – 30 June. I was there to photograph it.

The event was held in the recently built climbing wall in one of the newest malls in Sofia. There were 72 competitors from 12 countries, all looking strong and motivated. The organization was perfect thanks to The Bulgarian Climbing and Mountaineering Federation, the chief referee Wim Verhoven and everyone else who was involved. The route-setting was brilliant, offering interesting and tricky problems to the competitors. The chief route-setter was Kalin Garbov, assisted by Ivaylo Radkov – Fazata and Emiliyan Kolevski.

Now to the photos. Below you will find galleries of the differnt age groups and stages of the competition. Be sure not to miss the photos from the Male finals, as I used some external light to make them more attractive. Hope you enjoy them :)
