19 teams from 6 countries submitted applications for Championship. The deadline for applications is prolonged till the 15th September.

According to the Regulations of the World Championship (rock class), that will take place on the 1st-9th October in Crimea, on the 30th August was the deadline for submitting preliminary applications. Applications from 6 countries (Ukraine, Russia, Moldova, Kazakhstan, Georgia, Latvia) were received in the organizing committee of the competitions. Total amount of teams, wishing to participate in the competitions, is 19 roped parties (13 male, 5 female, 1 mixed). Taking into consideration the fact, that some countries received the information about competitions too late and had no time to choose candidates for participation, on the 31st October in Kiev the organizing committee decided to prolong the deadline for submitting preliminary applications till the 15th September.

 On the 5th September the list of names of expected participants will be published on the web-site of the Championship.

During the Championship International Seminar of Referees (29th-30th September) and Panel Discussion of heads of National Federations (4th October) will take place. We invite delegations of countries, developing mountaineering, to participate in this Panel Discussion.

 Date and place of Panel Discussion will be determined later.
