New boulder wall Hangar in Brno experienced its first endurance test on 11 January 2019 when the wall was inaugurated with the participation of Adam Ondra, who is the partner of the wall, journalists and representatives of the city of Brno. This opening ceremony included also a competition for invited climbers. Between the qualification and the final, also the visitors could get hands-on experience of the new boulder wall. The highlight of the day was the final with such stars as Adam Ondra, Martin Stráník, Iva Vejmolová (AIX Team), and the climbing centre was overcrowded. The atmosphere was comparable to that at the World Cup competitions, and deservedly, because this wall offers an ideal space for great contests and it is also a respectable training place for Adam Ondra who will be preparing here for the 2020 Olympics in Tokyo.
We would like to know what such a building of a wall means, and which workman got at it… Perhaps you will be surprised that no local climbers but “four musketeers” from Ostrava had the courage to go in. To get more information we asked Tomáš Labounek, the wall keeper and one of the four owners.
