Alex Johnson Reports on the IMS in Italy

 
Alex Johnson Reports on the IMS in Italy
 
November 27, 2010 -  Alex Johnson    
 

The International Mountain Summit event is a big celebration of mountaineering and climbing held every year in Brixen, Italy. For the boulder festival, eight men and eight women are invited to compete in an elimination-type format. This year I had the privilege of being invited. It was a really fun and relaxed competition with super boulder problems, a good crew, and an energetic crowd. It was my first time competing in the new Quantums, they rocked, and I ended up placing fourth. The top three places went to fellow American and Five Ten athlete Alex Puccio, Austrian Anna Stohr, and Alizee Dufraisse of France, respectively. I had a great time and hope to be invited back next year.

Thanks to Alex Kahn for the photo.
