Similar to speed climbing, bouldering is part of the Olympic program for the first time this year. A unique and special climbing construction awaits for the German Championships as part of the Ruhr Games. The climbing wall will be built onto the over 70-meter-wide stage in the Ruhrstadion. With high-caliber climbers and exciting competition, sports fans at the Ruhr Games will certainly get in the mood for the upcoming Olympic Games in Tokyo with this event.


Part of the Olympic Games for the first time and a discipline of the Ruhr Games for the second time: speed climbing. Franziska Ritter, an ambassador of the Ruhr Games, could become the German champion for the third time in a row! The athletes compete one-on-one and can expect a special visual fusion of two sports on the climbing wall at the Ruhrstadion. The steep climbing wall is 15 meters high and has a 5% overhang.
