    Diversity in route setting and climbing - How diverse is climbing really?  

    Historically male-dominated and for a long time inadmissible for women, climbing is now considered to be a sport that welcomes everyone. Climbing should be easily accessible, virtually free of -isms of any kind, and stands for openness.

    Using climbing, bouldering and route setting as example, we dare to take a look at the climing sport as FINTA+people* experience it. How diverse is climbing really? Which myths persist and which solutions are there? What is diverse route setting and why is it so important for the climbing experience?

    * „FINTA+“ means: Female, Inter-, Non-, Trans- and A-gender persons.

    Speakers: Team Routesetting Symposium
