Looking to the Future in Briançon

The Briançon Lead World Cup, a staple event in the IFSC calendar, provided a perfect backdrop for a meeting between IFSC President Marco Scolaris, Vice- President Treasurer and Finances Pierre-Henri Paillasson, President of the French Federation (FFME) Pierre You and local organisers.

After almost 25 years, the organisers continue to develop their event and seek to reach broader audiences, in part in memory of their “patron” Philippe Ligerot, who was killed two years ago in an avalanche. Proposals to develop the event included the relocation of the wall and a possible permanent infrastructure, to offer additional climbing opportunities to the thousands of climbers who come every year from all Europe to visit the endless crags of the region.
