Melloblocco in Tour 2018, instructions for use

di

Information before the start of the four-day Melloblocco in Tour & MMB Street Boulder 2018 that will take place at Cresciano and Lugano (CH) from Thursday 3 to Sunday 6 May 2018.

The 2018 program of Melloblocco Tour - MBB Street Boulder Lugano is more packed than ever before for everyone, with sport, recreation and cultural events taking place among the chestnut trees of the Cresciano forest, at the lakefront and on the buildings of the beautiful city of Lugano!

Climbing. Climbing takes place everywhere: on the buildings of Lugano, at the lakefront square on an indoor wall, but above all on the boulders in the Cresciano forest. It’s a world class bouldering area, suitable for everyone, even families with young children, with problems of all grades. Simone Pedeferri, once again in charge of preparing the area and the boulder problems, told planetmountain.com "The basis was our desire to create something that shares the joy and beauty of climbing. This is why we chose a sort of historical ‘journey’. 8 + 8 boulder problems (6 male problems and 6 female problems + 2 for both men and women) that retraces the history of bouldering at Cresciano and, at the same time, the history of bouldering." Go to the interview with Simone Pedeferri.

An event for everyone. Families and children will not be disappointed by the Tamaro Park adventure village in Piazza Manzoni; close to the fountain there will be 3 climbing walls, a Tyrolean traverse, a Tibetan bridge, G + S monitors and mountain guides to ensure fun and games. The Chaotic Family will continually provide parkour demonstrations. Click here for more info.

Evenings. Live music, a hangboard contest on Saturday night, and much more in the village in Piazza Riforma. The entire program is published on the website www.melloblocco.it and highlights include:
Thursday, 3 May at 21- The Cameroni Family (Claudio & Giuliano) presents "Cresciano yesterday, today and tomorrow"
Friday, 4 May at 9 pm - Matteo De Zaiacomo presents Baffin Island, Qualido and Kyrgyzstan
Saturday 5 May at 9 pm - Juliane Wurm, Boulder World Champion 2014, presents "Jule and Jan Hojer climbing Dreamtime"
