Anna Wells - Ice Climbing World Cup

By Jay Oram
06, Feb, 2015

We catch up on Anna Wells latest Ice Climbing Adventures

We last chatted to Anna Wells after she had taken part in some Mountain Marathons (Clickety). Since then she has been getting out climbing and has been doing quite some travelling whilst holding fdown her medical studies!

During the latter half of 2014 she took not only the British Tooling Championship, won an international dry tooling competition in Bergschenhoek, Holland (UKC Article) but also got a place in the Thunderdome climbing showcase in Buxton (Alpkit report).

We've been helping Anna out since she planned to summit all the Alpine 4000m peaks in one summer - and we are very happy supporting her through future climbing attempts. Following her  successful clean sweep of the BTS, she also completed her first M10, 'Fast and Furious' Newtyle Quarry up in Scotland.

She gave us a quick round up of her 2014 competitions

Fast forward a few weeks and off to the Ice Climbing World Championships - First Saas Fee in Switzerland - coming 11th and from her twitter feed, she loved every minute of it! Check out her take on the event in this UKC report

 

 

Anna stopped over in L'Usine to onsight an M9 as well !

She is competing over the next few days in Champagny, be sure to go along and follow her Twitter feed for updates - @annawellz  - you can also follow all the action on the UIAA Ice Climbing World Cup Page, if you're quick enough you can catch some live action from Champagny this Saturday (7/2/15). 

We will keep this page up to date with Anna's world cup stories.
