Rise Up Tour: A stop in Croatia
This National Park organized the 17th edition of a mythic climbers meeting.
Millet was partner of this event for the first time. So we have been there with a booth to present the products Roc Session, the Rise Up Machine in order to organize some challenges and a lot of climbing shoes to test for free !
The place was a real paradise for climbers, in the middle of the cliffs of the National Park.
From the 29th of april to the first of may, there was a fully program, with the Millet Rise Up Speed Climbing competition wich consisted to climb:
- 180 meters on a cliff with a 6c+ cotation
- 110 meters for women with a 6a+ cotation
But it was’nt the only test. The Paklenica Trail International 2016, a climbing marathon and a climbing movie festival were parts of the event!
Antoine Bletton has participated to the competition and he took the first place of the Millet Rise Up Speed Climbing with his teammate Igor Corko. Together they have climbed 180 meters in 18minutes and 10 seconds. The speed record established at Lyon by Thomas caleyron on the Rise Up MAchine in just 3 seconds as been pulverized in 2’29! However, the pull ups record still undefeated, with 37 pull ups per minute.
During all the week end, participants had the chance to try for free our climbing shoes from the new collection, and chalk bags and tee shirts has been offered to the bests climbers.
The event has been interrupted earlier than expected because of stormy weather conditions, but it did not take off the pleasure of all the people that came to participate or just admire those impressive performances.
