In 2016 the Rock Master Festival is a continuous display of top-notch climbing. The festival hosts the 30th edition of the traditional Rock Master, ever since 1987 the most important climbing competition in the world with the disciplines Duel and KO Boulder.
After the Youth World Championship that was held in Arco last year, this year the younger climbers can take past in the Rock Junior, the world’s largest youth climbing festival, for children aged 5 – 13. The date for budding climbers and their families is from 2 – 4 September 2016, with three activities that shouldn’t be missed: Rock Junior Under 14 Cup, Kid’s Rock and Family Rock.
The celebrations at Arco actually begin on Friday 26 August 2016 with the Arco Rock Legends, the sports climbing Oscar that for the last ten years has recognised the most important players of this sport with three coveted prizes: the Wild Country Rock Award for the best performance on rock, the La Sportiva Competition Award for the athlete who distinguished him or herself in competitions, and the Climbing Ambassador by Aquafil prize for the person who contributed significantly to promoting climbing worldwide.
But the Rock Master Festival is even more: in 2016 is hosts two disciplines of the IFSC Climbing World Cup: from 26 – 27 August the Lead World Cup and Speed World Cup.
