Arco RockmasterThis past weekend I attended the Arco Rockmaster Festival which is a Masters competition with a qualifying Open round. I decided to only do lead this year as well as the Speed Climbing World Cup. In the Speed World Cup, I almost beat my Personal Best (8.83) with a final time of 8.91. Full results HERE. This was very good preparation for the upcoming Lead and Speed World Championships in Spain. In Lead, I cruised through the semi finals route by placing second. In the Final round, which is after work, I placed 3rd after narrowly beating Jakob Schubert from Austria. The winner for the first time was Sachi Amma from Japan and second place went to Francesco Vettorata from Italy. On the final day of the event was the highly anticipated “Duel”. For those of you who don’t know what it is, it is Speed Lead climbing. This was the final Duel from 2013. The route is easier than in qualifications but the goal is to go fast. I qualified in third place and slowly made my way up the ranks. Here is the final race for 1st and 2nd with good friend Jakob Schubert.
