Melloblocco loves Wilderness:
no cars, thank you. In respect of the Val di Mello Natural Park the boulder areas will be reached either on foot or by bus-shuttles.

Melloblocco playground boulders:
This year too, hundreds of new problems will be clean and set for Melloblocco in full respect of the environment.

Melloblocco not only climbing:
Melloblocco is climbing but also parties, presentations, exhibitions, filed-tests, meetings, aperitives and more events on surprise. Do not miss the traditional La Sportiva Saturday-night Party.

Melloblocco test lab:
