Event in memory of Pavel Samoilin
In early May, Rock Empire´s Russian distributor, Redfox, helped to organize an international climbing festival in Crimea: Rock Climbing Crimea Fest in memory of Pavel Samolin. Rock Empire was a partner in this event.
Pavel Samolin was talented climber who was born in 1974 in Ekaterinburg. He died in a car accident in 1996.
He loved all kinds of climbing. As he said: "It doesn´t matter how well you climb; just climb."
He loved the rocks in Crimea – it was his favorite climbing spot and the main place where he trained, especially the routes "Nikita" and "Red Stone." He liked to climb the long, difficult routes.
