2 days to go until the who is who of the Bouldering scene is competing at the adidas Rockstar Competition in Stuttgart, Germany! Also our Five Ten rubber will stick to the holy Rockstar walls and will support our athletes to perform at their best. Check out some of our competing athletes and their secret weapons: Sasha diGiulian (Black Wing/women), Melissa LaNeve (Dragon), Carlo Traversi (Black Wing/men), Gabriele Moroni (Team)...
Sasha and Melissa are already in Germany and met another strong Five Ten athlete Monika Retschy, who is also competing at the Rockstar - for a common training session. The three girls pushed each other in a tough climbing session in the nicest Bouldergym in the heart of the Frankenjura (Café Kraft, Nuremberg)
Of course they are excited about the upcoming and probably best organized event in the bouldering and the mix of live music, interaction and climbing. Of course they want to show their best climbing.
But Monica as well wants to enjoy the atmosphere taking part in the Rockstar the first time. Sasha has to get used to plastic again, Melissa´s dream´s to hit the buzzer in the end.
Al of them got the original ‘Soßenbinder’ chalk now by Café Kraft, so they hopefully can stick to their dreams.
By the way: All of our athletes are at the Rockstar event on Saturday including the route setters Babsi and Bernd Zangerl, Mayan Smith-Gobat and special guest Dean Potter.
Take the advantage, stop by our Greenwall setup and get an individually signed poster of your favorite!
If you cannot come by, stay tuned, you´ll get a livestream on fiveten.com of the final on 7.30pm central European time.
And here´s something to follow up with right away:
