Rock Master Lead: outstanding victory by Puigblanque and Mina Markovic

08.09.2013 by Planetmountain

Saturday 7 September 2013. In a stadium filled to the brim Ramón Julian Puigblanque climbed extraordinarily to win his 7th Rock Master. Mina Markovic celebrated her La Sportiva Competition Award in the best way possible by winning the climbing champion's Master.

21:00. It's time for the Lead final. And the view onto the Climbing Stadium shows that it's packed to the brim. One might say this is Rock Master, pure beauty. Or, perhaps even, this is the pure beauty of Rock Master. Which might come down to the same thing. But there's no time to think about this as things immediately begin to get exciting. On the maxi-screen there's the video dedicated to Tito Traversa. And just like at Rock Junior a week ago, the entire stadium falls silent, as if suspended in mid-air. Before breaking out into a massive applause to bid farewell to the little champion who is no longer with us. One never gets used to emotions like these... what remains is the memory, for a short moment everything seems to stand perfectly still. And then Rock Master begins, the competition Tito had dreamt of, like everyone else. At this point no one knows it, and we don't want to give the game away, but this evening Rock Master holds something truly special in store.
