Oh my.... was my first reaction when Tim (our coach from the Dutch Alpine Club, NKBV) told us we were going to South Korea!
He managed to get enough together to send us all the way to South Korea for the first iceclimbing Worldcup of this season.
So, on January 5th we'll fly to Seoul and climb in Cheongsong on the 7th.
There are quite some competitors on the list, hopefully finally enough to get iceclimbing finally recognised by the Dutch Olympic Committee and bring the sports to a higher and broader standard...so we can all get to enjoy the fun of iceclimbing :)
I'm nervous, happy, and a bit stressed. Because the 5th of January...thats in less then a week time!
South Korea had been on my world-tick-list for a while, now still to visit 1001 other climbing, nature, mountain areas, but this one will be too good to be true :)
