2018 Recap: Route Setting in China

We’ve had a few trips this year, but none quite as big as our trip to China.

In April, ICP’s route setters hopped on a plane to Tianjin in northeastern China to set at Over Rock, a brand new 2200sqft bouldering and roped climbing gym.

Setting the gym took almost 3 weeks, with the help of a scissor lift and a hard working cherry picker. We set a total of 140 boulder problems and roped routes- but keep in mind some of those routes were almost 18m long!

It was almost like a dream having so many different holds to choose from. As Route Setting Manager, Bek did an amazing job of managing the whole project.

 

 

 

We’re super grateful to have had such a cool experience travelling to China to set a brand spanking new gym. It was definitely something we’d love to do again!
