Ice Climbing World Cup in a Car Park

This weekend, the multi-floor underground parking “Parkhaus” in Saas-Fee, Switzerland will once again transform into a spectacular ice climbing arena to host the 3rd stage of the UIAA Ice Climbing World Cup. The 10-storey car park is again the main attraction that together with the ice climbing wall, built in the middle of the circular ramp, will again provide an unusual and amazing stage not only for national and international athletes but also for the viewers to witness lively atmosphere of the ice climbing scene first hand not to mention the legendary ice parties. Simply put, this is an event not to be missed.
