world CLIMBERS party
First of all I want to do lots of good wishes to my great friend Alby that on june 27th was married to Ilaria in Ovada! I hope that you will always be happy! And now it's time to re wear your climbing shoes!
On Thursday 25th of June the Sciorba Climbing Gym held the Tapiro Block, the party for the end of the season (the gym is closed until early September). It was a great party where a good turnout of people were fun to solve the 25 qualification blocks of all the difficulties drew by the staff. At the end of the qualifying eight athlets who had closed the highest number of blocks went to the final. The final consisted of a single attempt on one problem which was a little bit.... particular. For those who know the gym it started from the cloud under the roof on the right and then slip on the wall above, after that you had to make a dyno to a good hold at the same height but on the opposite overhanging wall (yes; you had to jump from one part of the gym to the other!) and go down to the top. In the end me and Fabio Sciandrello had sent the problem and we could bring home the Tapirone!
After we have a great boufe of focaccia, beer and chips with attached an unespected birthday party lead us to an amazing slideshow of Serafino Ripamonti about his ascent of the Nose in Yosemite ... what’s amazing places that!
Sunday after the marriage we wakes up early and with Papik, Anna, Matteo, Seve, Monica and Bruno have done a fantastic visit to the crag of Pian Bernardo bloted precisely by Seve and Matteo. Despite my overweight we spend a beautiful day between friends in this wonderful and very selective crag. I would like to congratulate with Anna Gonzalez (team SterlingRope), which sent on last weekend "Smack my Crack" 8a + in about ten attempts, in the same spot . Great Annie!

Spent a moment with Finale where Domenico "Domingo" Spatari (Sciorba) bolted (with great work) and made the first RP of "30cm K ..." suggesting the 7c + for his new pitch that starts with 8/9mt of roof to get out on a beautiful overhanging wall. The new pitch is in the Domingo’s house.. the Tigrotto di Perti. After the main crag continue for 10 mt untill you reach a second cave.
