Replicas: Next Level Projecting or Heartless Performance Maximization?

In the race for the first iteration of Burden of Dreams (9A), all stops are pulled out: 3D scans, faithful replicas, pulleys for relief. Is this the future for advancing the sport of climbing? Or do replicas rob climbing of its soul? We spoke to the most important protagonists.

The program is presented by Bächli Bergsport and Petzl

Flash attempts in the live stream and replicas that are in no way inferior to the original. The new generation of strong climbers like Will Bosi or Aidan Roberts is currently raising project planning to a completely new level. In the recent program on Lacrux TV we took a closer look at this development and with the British high-flyer Will Bosi, with Lattice founder and head coach Tom randall, With Nalle Hukkataival as well as with the bouldering pioneer Bernd Zangerl talked about. Do high-tech replicas advance our sport or rob it of its soul? Make up your own mind!

Well cleaned is half climbed

Even if it's not your Burden of Dreams: brushing the holds of a boulder or a climbing route properly can work wonders. The quality of the brush plays a major role. The high-quality and creatively designed wooden brushes from Faza are made by hand in Europe with great attention to detail.

The glued bristles enable a dense trimming and thus a long-lasting use - whether for bouldering or climbing. With the colorful models of Confession in Color series you are literally showing your colors.
