Rock Master Festival - IFSC Climbing World Cup

The Rock Master Festival hosts the only italian competions of the Climbing World Cup for the Speed and Lead disciplines

The IFSC CLIMBING WORLD CUP is an international circuit of competitions organised by the International Federation of Sports Climbing since 1989. At the end of the seasons four trophies are awarded: Boulder, Speed, Lead and Combined. The Rock Master Festival hosts the only italian competions of the IFSC Climbing World Cup for the Speed and Lead disciplines.

Friday 25th August is dedicate to the qualifications with over 200 athletes competing for access to the finals of Saturday 26th.

 

IFSC LEAD CLIMBING WORLD CUP
When: 25/26 August 2017
The Lead Climbing World Cup returns to Italy for its stage during the Rock Master Festival.
Lead is the queen sport climbing discipline, the athletes tackle an extremely difficult route and the climber who climbs highest wins. Only the greatest champions reach the very top, at the end of the large overhang.

On Friday 25 and Saturday 26 August the athletes eliminate each other in order to qualify for a place in the final, during which the best 8 men and women will battle for the highest podium position by breaching the legendary Rock Master Climbing Stadium overhangs.

IFSC SPEED WORLD CUP
When: 25/26 August 2017
Modern speed climbing was born in Arco in 1988 and since then, every year the vertical sprinters challenge each other up the Climbing Stadium wall. The only factor that counts is speed: a handful of seconds to climb 15 meters to the top, flying from one handhold to the next.

On Firday 25th and Saturday 26th August the world’s fastest climbers will once again spring into action in the Speed World Cup. Will the amazing world records be beaten, set by Danyl Boldyrev in 5.60 and Iuliia Kaplina in 7.53? And will the crowd cheer to another outstanding Italian performance, like in 2012 with Gontero and in 2014 with Santoni?
