Climbing has become very popular, and increasingly also in the media, since the sport has also been Olympic (first medals awarded to Tokyo in 2020). Especially climbing halls are more and more visited by large crowds. Hall operators are therefore constantly trying to improve their services and make optimal use of their infrastructure, with the aim of managing the hall more economically and offering visitors the best possible experience.
The indoor area is also used 365 days a year for training purposes in competitive sports. In the future, performance groups will increasingly focus on optimised training sequences in order to make training units more effective.
This aspect is particularly relevant in South Tyrol. With the Dolomites and the main ridge of the Alps, a multitude of enviable climbing areas can be found, which attract more and more people. Young people in particular are increasingly finding access to climbing sports and can prove their worth in the AVS's nationally operating performance groups. First national and international successes confirm a positive development. In 2017, for example, Filip Schenk in Innsbruck became World Youth Champion in Bouldering, Michael Piccolruaz won the first Italy Cup in Olympic format (Lead/Boulder/Speed), Jana Messner won the second place at the Italian Championships in the Lead Youth category.
Based on the described developments it is of great importance for the stakeholders to get uncomplicated data on the ascents of the individual routes, ideally with the help of an automated system which can autonomously record this data.⇠ Back
