Building a free indoor and outdoor climbing gym to support volunteer rescuers

Бъкстон 44

Здравейте, за тези, които имат желание Планината да отиде при тях и да се направи външна 3 етажна стена за изкуствено катерене, вътрешен боудеринг до 5 метра боудеринг, специална стена за трениране, както и Веранда сред борове и красива гледка към Витоша, може се включат в инициативата. По вертикала на високите борове в двора, може да се направят и полиспастни системи за обучение на извличане на хора….

Нашата помощ за българи, работещи в подкрепа на своите общности по време на COVID-19, е да предоставим безвъзмездно труда си и ресурсите си, както и помещения за безвъзмездно ползване на средни бизнеси, които могат най-ефективно да подпомогнат доброволчески инициативи. Едното място е в сърцето на София, сред дърветата. Сега мястото е празно и липсват щорите, но локацията е страхотна. С проекта, който ще строим в близост, даваме и работа на хора от столицата и провинцията.

Другото място е в центъра на София, до 5те кюшета. За повече информация ни пишете.



Our assistance to Bulgarians working to support their communities during COVID-19 is to provide for free our labor and resources, as well as  to grant facilities for medium-sized businesses that can most effectively support volunteer initiatives. One of our places is in the heart of Sofia, among the trees and has a beautiful view to the Vitosha Mountain. The place will be turned into a temporary Indoor Climbing Gym and Mobile Mission Control Center and the location is suitable to build a three  (3) storey high artificial climbing wall. 

This is part of our goal to create the Rescuer of the Future – the rope access tech who can climb with ropes and without ropes to safety or without safety, with technology or without technology.  As you see with the current situation in COVID-19, life is not always fair and the Rescuer of the Future should be prepared for everything.

With the project we will build nearby, we also give work to people from the city and the countryside.

Here’s How we can Build an Ice Climbing Wall in Our Backyard

An ex-ice climber Ivan Kristoff will build an ice climbing wall in his backyard. He will use the base of a 10-metre tall dry pine tree by using some inexpensive supplies with a snow fence wrapped around it in the winter and artificial holds for solo Antenna Mast Tower. This project is inspired by the fact that he is the first person in the world and a solo-operator to climb and work on ropes above 500 meters off the ground – the Antenna Mast on the top of the CN TOWER.


Rope Acceess from the CN Tower

Бившият катерач на лед Иван Кристоф ще изгради стена за катерене на лед в задния си двор. Той ще използва основата на 10-метров висок сух бор, като използва някои нескъпи консумативи със снежна ограда, увита около него през зимата и изкуствени трюмове за соло катерене в стил “Antenna Mast Tower”. Този проект е вдъхновен от факта, че той е първият човек в света и соло-оператор-катерач, който се изкачва и работи по въжета над 500 метра от земята – Антенната мачта на върха на CN TOWER.

Rock climbing will be an official Olympic sport in the new Olumpics in Japan and we will be happy to train the Rescuers of the Future with Olympic champions in other sports to grow the culture of world class training.

IKF is a membership club experience conceived by art collector, Bulgarian-born Canadian , Ivan Kristoff, organized around a world-class contemporary art collection.
