Every year Arco in Italy’s Trento province becomes the international climbing capital thanks to the Rock Master Festival. In this unique adrenalin-filled event, the world’s best climbers compete to become 2014’s climbing champions.
This unmissable sporting kermesse, which takes place from August 28 to September 7 2014, is dedicated to mountain and outdoor sport lovers so that they can feel part of a big outdoor sports event and meet the champions.
We had to be present at such a special event to be able to share our “climbing passion” and give you the possibility to see, touch and try out our most innovative products and the best gear for climbing and other “vertical disciplines”.
At our stand in the Climbing Village, we’ll be happy and proud to help you try out the Click Up, the patented belay device, light and compact, designed for sport climbing.
Thanks to its ease of very intuitive use, Click Up is suitable also for beginners and children because it is foolproof. If the rope is inserted incorrectly, Click Up still lets you brake the rope and safely lower the climber to the ground, thanks to its V-grooves designed for such a situation. This unique mode addresses the many errors that take place when belay devices are used in sport climbing or in indoor climbing gyms.
Prepare yourselves to see the best and if you too want to imitate the great champion climbers, remember the importance of having equipment which guarantees the highest security and ease of use. With Climbing Technology you know you are safe. We recommend thehot-forged Aerial Pro Set quickdraws with their new straight best-grip gate, broad aperture, high strength and catch-free closure which avoids accidental tangling during use.
Don’t forget the harness: try the light and hard-wearing On Sight developed specifically for sport climbing. The leg loops’ T-structure ensures great comfort and has an innovative SRS (Size Regulation System): a plastic buckle permits optimum size adjustment, retains the end of the waist belt and improves the fit to your body. It is completed by a rear loop for your chalk bag, 4 large gear loops and two slots for karabiners for a hammer holster or for other equipment.
