Melloblocco 2010: up to the challenge

As expected, boulderers from all over Europe converged on Melloblocco in Italy the weekend of May 6-9.

This was a bet not to be taken lightly, considering the atrocious weather forecast... But boulderers are the persevering type and Melloblocco's favorable microclimate saved the weekend.

 

Perseverance rewarded

 

The Melloblocco is back !

The largest international gathering of boulder fans will take place from May 6th to 9th in the Italian valleys of Val Masino and Val di Mello.

You will find all the features that usually make the Melloblocco competition so exceptional, but also some novelties to be discovered this year. Petzl will notably organize a SAGAGNASS evening on Saturday night with Lafouche and Said.
