Interview with Angelica Lind

Was erwartest Du von BRONX ROCK Invitational? / What do you expect of BRONX ROCK Invitational?
To make and climb some good and interesting problems, to meet the other climbers and have a lot of fun!

Hast du dir irgendwas Spezielles für das Schrauben vorgenommen? /
Do you have special plans for the routesetting?

I want to make a problem that is not a typical girl problem (=crimpy). I like slopers and big pinchholds! Dynamic moves is my speciality J

Wo siehst Du Möglichkeiten zur Weiterentwicklung des Kletterns? /Where do you see possibilities for development of climbing?
I think it is important to bring the sport to the people by arranging events at public places and not only in climbing gyms. International female routsetters will also be important for the development of the sport, think the girls can bring some new ideas into the scene.

Was würdest Du an deinem Sport ändern wollen?/ What part of your sport would you like to change?
I like bouldering as a sport and don’t want to change anything except to get female routesetters. For the climing comps there should be a lot of changes, because the comps are going on for so many hours and are boring to watch.
