It was warm enough today for climbers to demonstrate Lead and Speed in their T-shirts and the warm weather also brought out a variety of visitors who came to give the wall a try at Olympic Park in Sochi. They included Svetlana Zhurova, former Russian speed skater and ‘mayor’ of Sochi’s Olympic Village. A photo blog by Lukasz Warzchea:
