Petzl RopeTrip 2014: Overview

 

Location: C2 TRAINING CENTER

The qualifying rounds take place at C2 Training Center, part of C2 Vertical Safety, a company that distributes Petzl products in Sweden. This center is the only one of its kind in Scandinavia: Created in 2008, it has already trained over 2000 people for vertical professions, from Sweden and abroad.

The infrastructure provides a space that is 18 meters high and has a 450 m² floor surface. It can be used to simulate a great variety of work at height scenarios.

The finals will take place outside, with the public in attendance, on an incredible building in the city of Uppsala.
