The idea of Climbami comes from a group of climbers who want to bring back the streetboulder in Milan and raise awareness of climbing to as many people as possible even outside of our circle. I thought to participate as a spectator, but Gianluca (Moon Italia) has the brilliant idea to try and show what the moonboard is and he proposes a small contest.  

On behalf of Gianluca and his staff, Andrea Zanone and I were asked to organize the first contest in Italy on a moonboard.I'm used to organize competitions, but a contest with such a small panel had several unknowns...After a few weeks of developing the concept we depart to Milan: Gianluca, Andrea and I met for a quick lunch and we started to carry the material for the moonboard to the location of the event.

    Towards the evening the contest began with nearly 40 people, we improvised the rules using the one of the launches competition, but with maximum two errors instead of three. After 45 minutes, we had the winners of the first Moonboard contest: the top steps of the podium were for Marco Zanone (men) and Chiara Limonta (female) The competition was improvised and very nice and I think it's a starting point to organize other moonboard contests;). My thanks go to Gianluca Fasci and to Moon Climbing for giving me the opportunity to have been able to be part of this great little thing.
