Iran rock climber bags silver in Asian Champs

Tehran, Dec 17, IRNA – Iranian female rock climber Sara Zeraatzadeh snatched a silver medal in 2017 Asia K Climbing Championship held in Singapore.

The event was held with the attendance of 61 girls and 82 boys from Iran, Hong Kong, Kazakhstan, Thailand, Singapore, India, South Korea, and Taipei.

The championships got underway on Dec 16-17 in three categories of lead, boulder and speed.

Rock climbing is an activity in which participants climb up, down or across natural rock formations or artificial rock walls. The goal is to reach the summit of a formation or the endpoint of a usually pre-defined route without falling. Due to the length and extended endurance required and because accidents are more likely to happen on the descent than the ascent, rock climbers do not usually climb back down the route.
