The Adidas Rockstar bouldering competition took place this past weekend in Stuttgart Germany’s, Porsche-Arena. The event combines a live rock band with high paced bouldering, culminating in a super-final dual, head to head race to the top. The list of competitors is a veritable World Cup of top athletes and pro climbers for the ranks of rock climbing.
The Rockstar comp and the recent Psicobloc deep water solo event in Park City, Utah have been the breakout comps this year. By letting competitors showcase their talents in a fun but challenging arena and by giving spectators a more lively show, the event organizers have created a win-win situation that most comps struggle to achieve.
