The artificial competition wall will be built in the city’s canal basin. The canal basin and the Piazza Terracina provides the perfect water space and large arena area for spectators to view the competition up close.
Entre-Prises UK are delighted to announce that they are to design and build the climbing wall for the Deep Water Solo Competition; they will also be sponsoring the event along with climbing equipment manufacturers such as La Sportiva, DMM and others.

The city council has provided strong backing for the event, recognising the huge publicity it could bring to the city’s tourism.
