From the IFSC: “This weekend, the world’s top climbers in Speed and Boulder will travel to Baku (AZE), for a rematch of last weekend’s Speed and Boulder lineup in Chongqing (CHI). Baku, situated on the landlocked Caspian Sea, will be a spectacular backdrop worthy of the breathtaking exploits of our World Cup competitors. The city is a quickly developing sports centre; Baku is also set to host the 2015 European Games.”
