Sport climbing lovers are growing year by year, outdoor sport is getting more popular and Rock Master has always been a must-see event for those who love this activity, with or without a rope.
The 34th edition of Rock Master, sport climbing’s main festival, takes place on 27th August at the Climbing Stadium in Arco (Trentino, Italy). It represents the world’s oldest climbing competition and that is also why audience has been loving it since the beginning. Thousands and thousands of people gather every year under the overhanging walls of the structure, a Federal centre as well as home of the most popular champions’ trainings.
This year, due to Covid’s restrictions, the organizing committee had to make strong choices: only 330 seats will be available to audience, as for those who cannot be there, Rai Sport broadcasts the whole event live on TV.
Tickets will be on sale online exclusively on the reliable platform Midaticket starting from 7th August. No doubt it will be a real “speed” race against time to get a front row ticket.
Still, ticketing is open until Friday 20th August and subject to availability. There are three kinds of available tickets: 200 seats for the ‘Full Day’ at a cost of 30€, 70 seats for the “Evening Only Duel” at a cost of 20€ and 15 seats ‘Family Place’ at a cost of 70€, exclusively for two adults and two under 14.
Clearly, Covid restrictions and rules are applied to those entering the Climbing Stadium: only Green Pass holders will be able to be there. Those who are coming from non-Schengen Area countries must present a valid vaccine certificate or, as an alternative, a negative Covid swab rapid test or a negative PCR, done not earlier than 48 hours.
On Friday 27th August, women KO Boulder takes place in the late morning, men KO Boulder in the afternoon. On the other hand, there is the fascinating “Duel”: the strict competition between the best climbers of the world setting the Stadium on fire since the first edition starts in the evening. In 2019, an unknown Alberto Ginés Lòpez, the fresh Olympic Champion, was being defeated in the Duel by Adam Ondra, fighting for his sixth victory here. Two years ago, Alberto Ginés Lòpez had just finished the Youth World Championships, where he achieved a third place in the combined, the same formula that would have given him the Olympic title two years later.
That was also the year of consecration for Laura Rogora, the winner of boulder, lead and combined. Rogora is surely present at Rock Master 2021; Adam Ondra is also signed up, he’s seeking for redemption after his “disappointing” 6th place at the Olympic Games.
