At the end of August in Arco, Italy another race in the World Cup speed climbing and lead climbing series took place. Rock Empire had our own representative: Rock Empire Team Member Honza Zima wearing our Slight 1B harness. This harness also helped Russian climber, Julja Kaplina, during her second place win.

ROCK EMPIRE hosted a booth during the 23nd OutDoor tradeshow, which took place in Friedrichshafen, Germany, from 13 - 16th of July 2016 and we are glad that many visitors joined us!
You could see ROCK EMPIRE´s latest collection of light-weight sport climbing harnesses, SLIGHT, and other new products.
The adventure of exploring a new land with a backpack full of climbing (including 1B SLIGHT)and highlining gear and a few friends is hard to beat. This was no exception on my recent excursion to Tasmania; a far away island in Australia that easily attains a list on most beautiful places I've traveled to.
