Rock Junior 2011, a 10 year climbing celebration
Saturday 1 Ocotber 2011. Boom of participants during the first day of the 10th Rock Junior at the Climbing Stadium in Arco. 207 athletes competed in the Under 14 Cup while 130 middle school students from Arco participated. Another 300 climbers are expected tomorrow for the Kid's Rock.
Perhaps it's because the World Championship atmosphere is still tangible here in Arco. Perhaps it's due to the sun shining onto the Colodri rock face and illuminating the entire Climbing Stadium playground. Or perhaps it's simply because Rock Junior is celebrating its 10th anniversary. But today, on day one of the biggest youth climbing festival in the world, the atmosphere here is akin to that of truly great events. In harmony, naturally, with the spirit of these young and extremely young climbers who have travelled to Arco to put themselves to the test in the Under 14 Cup and also to share a love. That very same love for climbing which often is often shared by their parents, too, and these are another fundamental Rock Junior component. Because this, more than simply a youth competition, is above all a moment for the entire family to celebrate. A party which has never been as crowded as this year.
