adidas ROCKSTARS 2016

September 23 & 24, 2016, Stuttgart (Germany)

Rock and roll rhythms and funky vibes, plus powerful, dynamic, and spectacular climbing moves on vertical walls: at ROCKSTARS 2016, the world’s best bouldering athletes fight for the coveted “Rockstar” title and a high prize-money at Porsche-Arena in Stuttgart, Germany, on September 23 and 24, 2016.

Climbing and bouldering are booming worldwide, which shows in the fact that the International Olympic Committee has recently chosen the sports to be included in the programme of the 2020 Olympic Summer Games at Tokyo, Japan. Some of the athletes competing at ROCKSTARS 2016 will certainly fight for Olympic honours in four years.  The popular invitational contest for the international climbing elite is in its sixth year. More than 3,500 spectators will share the excitement when world champions, world cup winners, and national champions impressively demonstrate why bouldering, i. e. climbing without a rope over a crash pad, is considered one of the most difficult disciplines in sport climbing.
