Just a few pictures from Lithuania climbing competition that was held in Climbing Club KAUNAS on November 7th. A wide range of climbers- about 100 competitors from beginners to professionals- took part in in this action and ROCK EMPIRE was a partner of this competition.
The annual Girls Only Slackline Festival is a highline meeting for women held in Ostrov, Czech Republic. The event is in it's 6th year, and more than 30 girls gathered in the sandstones to put their balancing skills to the test on a variety of highlines. The event is an international affair, with at least eight nationalities represented. This year girls attended from as far as Sweden and USA.
Just a few memories from 2015 Outdoor in Friedrichshafen, Germany, where we - as we do every year- introduced new products, which can be enjoyed in the upcoming seasons. This year, we had the opportunity, through our Russian distributor Redfox, to include a few of our harnesses in the Trends Fashion Show. Our sport harnesses Calista, Streak and Titan were highlighted.
Rock Empire will host a booth during A + A- SAFETY, SECURITY AND HEALTH AT WORK, which will take place in Dusseldorf, Germany, from 27. - 30th of October 2015, and we invite our distributors to join us!
We are proud to introduce our brand new collection of sport climbing harnesses that we believe will astonish you. Our new collection, SLIGHT < 310, is completely different in style, design and comfort. Our ROCK EMPIRE designers achieved their goal to create harnesses that go far beyond the norm in terms of comfort and lighter weight and incorporate vibrant colors.
I am doing great. I am currently in Yosemite Valley, mostly climbing actually, but some highlining too! I am climbing a lot of the classic cracks and some multi pitch, and this weekend I will help set up a 200 meter highline (which I don't expect to walk, but I will try!)
