Melloblocco 2012, a record start!

02.05.2012 by Planetmountain

Melloblocco 2012 begins on 3 May in Val di Mello - Val Masino. The world's biggest international bouldering meeting kicks off with a record 2700 pre-registered climbers.

Were Melloblocco to be Woodstock, you could easily state that it'll be nothing but a record-breaking concert. More than 2700 climbers have already got their tickets - have already pre-registered - for tomorrow's start in Val di Mello. All are ready to interpret the rock as if it were a new hit. And all the world's best artists will be there, from A (Adam) to Z (Zangerl).

For the ninth year running the valley will host a stunning array of the world's best climbers who will take part in the competition during the meeting, climbing side by side next to an even more stunning list of climbers of all ages and ability levels who will go for the pure pleasure of it all, to have fun climbing, all together in magic Val di Mello.

To all those taking part we wish a great Melloblocco and, if you've never been before or are still undecided and haven't registered yet, please do take our advice: go there, climb and party, you won't be disappointed! It'll be a record of climbing and fun!
