Hiroshi Okano (JPN)

Climbing problems are the prime soul of a climbing competition. This year, the route setting team of KAILAS JUST CLIMB CUP 2017 is led and directed by chief route setter – Hiroshi Okano, the renowned Japanese IFSC international route setter.   

The chief route setter will be in charge of the whole route setting part of the bouldering competition. With his great experience for taking part in the route setting section of numerous world championships and world cups, the climbing problems in the upcoming KAILAS JUST CLIMB CUP 2017 would definitely be challenging and worth expecting!

“It’s a design. We portray the climbing scene in our mind and we actually execute it through route setting.” Let’s expect the amazing work by the route setting artist!
