31 Oct Basilicata BlocFest
Campomaggiore (PZ), October 30th-31th 2010
First edition of the main bouldering meeting in South Italy: this very promising event raises a lot of expectations, also thanks to the cooperation and collaboration of Campomaggiore Township.
The boulder area is wonderful! Partially described in the guidebook A SUD by Graziano Montel, is included in the Regional Natural Reserve of Gallipoli Cognato, only a few km from Potenza. The cleaned and reviewed blocs are more than 300, and the potential number of boulder is impressive, raising to a couple of thousands!
The rock is an excellent sandstone, and the boulders are scattered in the awesome forest landscape.
There will be prizes in money (on 5 selected boulders) and climbing gear.
