It is the Melloblocco bouldering festival in Val di Mello, Italy this weekend. A strong Alpkit team is heading out including Shauna Coxsey and James Garden along with amatuer pad-caddy Kenny. Both James and Shuana are looking forward to launching themselves into the melee and exploring the valley for the first time. For Shauna, who is currently competing in the bouldering world cup it likely to be a welcome break. Melloblocco is primarily about the climbing but there are also parties, presentations, exhibitions, field-tests, meetings, aperitifs and more.. visit the Melloblocco website for more details.
