Moon Blog / Bouldering / Melloblocco 10
As every year the call of Melloblocco pressed inside me, especially this year because it was the 10th edition and the organizers exceptionally decided for 10 days instead of the usual 3-4.
I didn’t think twice and I decided to participate in all 10 days to have the good opportunity to enjoy the environment of the valley without the frenzy of the last days.
I decided to leave on 26th of April in order to escape the chaos of Rome and recharge my batteries.
I don’t want to tell about performances or important names, but I want to try to make people understand what Melloblocco is, especially to those who never had the chance to be there.
Melloblocco is a huge climbing “Woodstock”, where people from all over the world meet to share something simple: climbing without barriers, without prejudices, without limits, all together.
Adults, children, addicteds, champions… all together in a land before time to share the same passion in hearts that beat together.
I had the chance to climb with people from Colombia, India, Lituania, from the furthest unthinkable places in a huge ensemble of colors and cultures that I never thought that climbing could move together at the same time.
Even if the weather conditions didn’t help us in the first few days, it was important to be in the valley in order to get together and share the desire to climb even if for a few moments only.
Days go by, the weather recovers and the valley comes to life until the awards ceremony on Sunday on the stage of the Filorera Mountain Centre, where every year the most deserving who climbed a number of blocks is called to the stage to be honored
I came back to Rome happy and enthusiastic, with the memory of those days spent with my old friends that I can meet once a year at Melloblocco and with the new climbers I met.
For the records of numbers and performances, I am attaching the link of Planetmountain.com with the guide of all 10 days of the event.
