IFSC President Marco Scolaris shares on the positive ambience, Olympics discussions, Board elections and more of the 2017 IFSC Plenary Assembly.

"This year’s Plenary Assembly in Quebec was exactly what we envisioned," said the IFSC President. "Climbing Escalade Canada (CEC) and the Fédération Québécoise de la Montagne et de l’Escalade (FQME) did a fantastic job, organising all aspects of the event and one of the best PA ever. Our President of the PanAmerican Council, Maria Izquierdo, and her team were the perfect hosts."

Regarding the Olympics, Mr. Scolaris said, "It was the 10th anniversary of the founding of the IFSC, and we celebrated with the richest discussion on the Olympics. We were glad to take decisions together on two key topics: the Olympic Format to be adopted and the main concept of the Qualification System approved at the PA, which will be worked on with the International Olympic Committee (IOC) once they release their Qualification Principles. This concept is that Athletes will qualify through Combined (Olympic format) events only."

The IFSC President also shared his thoughts on the IFSC Executive Board change: "It was a pleasure to recognize this devotion [of Helmut Knabl] during the PA, which voted to present him with the title of IFSC “Honorary Member.” Now filling his position [as IFSC Vice-President Sports/Events] will be Kobinata Toru of the Japanese Mountaineering Association (JMA), who has already contributed in so many ways...We also welcomed new President of the Oceania Council, Romain Thevenot: his enthusiasm will surely boost the growth in this region."

Crux Crush has been going strong for almost 4 years, and we are incredibly proud of what we have produced. However, as climbers with full time jobs and otherwise busy lives, it has become more and more difficult to find the inspiration and motivation to maintain the site. We are extremely lucky to have been […]

Patxi Usobiaga, the best climber in the world during the late -00's and who then got a neck injury from a traffic accident, has written a new blog. Road to discovery - beyond 9a. "It is with pure joy and restless motivation that I write this post. I am so overwhelmed right now. Just days after celebrating the 14 year anniversary of my first 9a ascent (Il Domani) I sent a new linkup between Joe Blau (8c+) and Papichulo (9a+) and I think it could be dubbed Patxitxulo 9a/+ (5.14d/5.15a)."

Jakob Kronberger has done his second 9a FA, Baumwesen in Salzburger Land. Three weeks ago the 16 year old did The Power of Goodbye 8B. "The route was shown to me by Klem Loskot in last November. Klem showed me his beta for the crux and I immediately fell in love with the Baumwesen. He said it would be totally fine with him if i made the first accent, so I went for it. All in all I spent about 10 days in the route. For the year 2017 my number one priority is to stay healthy. I had quite a few problems with my fingers the last season. I wasn't often able to try really hard routes and when I did, I usually payed the price for it the next day. Aside of that I really want to do a project in Salzburg which I started last season. I don't have many more routes on my wish list this year."

Kymy de la Peña has done his first 9a, Seta Total 9a in Cuenca. The route was partially bolted by local Cuco and finished by Luis Alfonso Félix and José Luis Palao 'Primo'. Both did it after the Pablo Barbero's FA and also Ramón Julián. (c) Javipec Based on his scorecard with 600 ascents, we can see that the 31 year old has had a continuous progress for eight straight years. How many tries did it take you? The route took me 4 tries this year. Last season I tried it as well after I sent El Intento (the 8c+/9a on its right) and I was very close, but I couldn't. Maybe 8 tries in total. Tell us more about your progression.. Since 2009, it has been very progressive. I started climbing in 2008 when I was 23. Yap.., I'm not Alex Megos haahaha. I think that the progress is the result of the motivation for climbing, and that is the key, enjoying the same as when I did my first 7a. Also my experience as a trainer, based on working with so many people has made me better in the last years.

Jernej Kruder has taken some days off from his training preparation for the Boulder WC and done Catalan Witness the Fitness 8C and Bi Herre, Borroka Bat 9a in La Cueva de l'ocell. (c) Greg Mionske "It was unbelievable! Doing a 9a route and 8C boulder in two days is just something wonderful." The Slovenian, is one of the best multi-discipline climbers in the world and he is #2 in the 8a combined ranking game. In 2014, he was #2 in the Boulder World Champion and last year he did Es Pontas 9a+, beside also doing hard core MPs. "My training program is simple and it only contains power endurance, mainly 15 moves circles. I just enjoy climbing....I don't bother with my goals too much...so I'm just working on my power endurance which I think it gives me the best progression."

Sébastien BOUIN, who previously has done over 20 routes 9a, half of them FAs, has done Definicion de la resistencia démocrata for which he gives a personal 9a grade. "Finish the job is important! Even if you are close, you have to stay focus. Sometime is the more important." The 23 year old French has previously suggested personal down grades for six former 9a to 9b+' included some very famous ones. (c) Jonas Wiklund

Barbara Zangerl one of the best female-multi discipline climbers out there has done Chikane in Siurana, which is her first 8c+. (c) Jacopo Larcher "It took me about seven days this year to do Chikane. But I had a look on that one already two years ago. At that time I felt quite far away to connect the hard moves. This year the progress was good. It took me some days to work on the moves then I had a bad fall skipping a draw. After that fall I almost did it but I had some troubles with my mind. Luckily two days later I was more self-confident and finally Chikane was kind with me and didn't kick me off again. Feels so good to enjoy simple life here in Spain and get back into sport climbing mode.

Fabian Buhl has released the amazing news about his 8c rope solo FA of the 7 pitches Ganesha in Sonnenwand. It took the former 8C boulder some 20 days, totally by himself, to do it ground up adding just four bolts. (c) Stefan Schlumpf His self-belay system involved an upside down Grigri and a lot of tricks and he took countless fall up to 18 meters. It took him four days just to reach the top. "Freeclimbing and taking big falls until I could fix myself to bolt it. Belays are bolted and then 4 bolts for protection rest is trad." The FA was done last fall but he choose not to say anything until the amazing video was released. In regards to if he has any new projects: "Yes, but I don't talk so much about projects. But I like to bring my solo climbing to bigger mountains."

Melissa Le Nevé, the retired World Cup climber who was #3 in the Boulder WC last year, reports on Instagram that she has done her first 8B+, Mécanique Élémentaire in Fontainebleau. (c) Fabian Buhl "Today I was able to send my hardest climb on the paper but mostly my hardest challenge in terms of reachy moves and mental side! After falling a while on the very last move I finally could stand on the top of "mecanique elementaire" 8b+."
