Dedicated to the Rock Master spectators

11.09.2008 by Planetmountain

The portfolio of the spectators at the 22nd Rock Master in Arco by Giulio Malfer.

They are in hundreds, in thousands. They are young and extremely young, old glories and life-long, passionate climbers. But also entire families with fathers, mothers, children and even toddlers. As usual the Rock Master ritual is comprised of groups of friends who gather together just like at a concert. Patient and happy, a thousand colours in the Climbing Stadium, waiting for miracles that only champions can create.

They cheer for all. Are amazed and exalt for each performance, are never satiated by the evolution of the athletes. They understand when a climber is in difficulty and push them upwards. They revell in the victories by also comprehend the delusion of defeat. Because they are capable of appreciating the immense difficulties of these vertical problems.

They know almost all of these champions and immediately appreciate the value of the youngest who debut on this immense wall. They are taken in by the music. Enjoy the action and the pauses. They seize the moment, as if illuminated. And the lawn welcomes them like old friends... These are the Rock Master spectators, without them this Master of Masters wouldn't exist. They are the true spectacle!
