Yesterday we had our first DM in our sports hall
That was possible because we have built one of the best climbing walls in Denmark in Ribehallen, our sports hall at Danhostel Ribe.
It was the Danish Championship in rock climbing for both senior women and men arranged by Ribe Klatreklub (Ribe Climbing Club).
It was the first time the Danish Championship took place in Southwest Jutland.
The route was built by Christian Bindhammer from Germany
He is an experienced rock climber and has won several German and international prices – like the German Championship Frankenthal 2007 (Deutsche Meisterschaft Frankenthal 2007) and a second place in Rock Climbing World Cup in Valence, France (Weltcup Valence 2004).
We understand why he won these prices, because after the chairman of the Ribe climbers, Allan Beck, and the vice mayor of Esbjerg municipality, Jakob Lose, had opened the Danish Championship, Christian Bindhammer climbed the route he built, to show how it CAN be done Spider-Man-style.
While he was climbing you could watch how the Danish climbers prepared themselves mentally and physically by studying his route and moves doing the same movements with their arms and legs while standing on the sports hall’s floor.

I also got almost to the top, but it was with help from a lift and Rikke, a climber from Ribe Klatreklub. From the lift I made my first movie ever and now it is showed on Danhostel Ribe’s facebook, on You Tube, and now here on our blog. This documentary film is from the qualifying round of senior women with a few photos from climbers, speakers, and spectators in the sports hall.
