Recognised for its commitment to diverse aspects of rock climbing, its promotion of sustainable practices and support of local economic development, the International Climbers’ Festival was a fitting recipient of the annual UIAA Rock Climbing Festival Award. The provisional calendar for the 2017 UIAA Ice Climbing season has been announced with five World Cup events programmed and several innovations and new competition formats confirmed. 2017 marks the anniversary of a number of groundbreaking UIAA ethical papers including the Kathmandu Declaration and the Ethical Code for Expeditions. How to successfully climb Kilimanjaro is explored in our latest UIAA MedCom advice profile while the Iran Mountaineering and Sport Climbing Federation prepares to welcome the world of climbing and mountaineering at October’s UIAA General Assembly.
