The venue of the competition was spectacular. In the middle of the Kongresni trg (“Congress Square“), the climbing wall was standing which frame was built out of two shipping containers. The competition was held on the mounting wall that entirely resulted from local knowledge. The audience were able to see the highlight of the events late in the evening when the wall started to glow with the help of light effects and the best climbers attacked the climbing holds.
