We recently spoke to the Moonboard legend Hoseok Lee about his training, climbing on the Moonboard and dream boulders. You might have seen his outrageous training feats and hard climbing on Instagram, so be prepared for more psych. Rea on to check out what he had to say!

Love big city life, love the outdoors? Think Cliffhanger Sheffields inner-city festival dedicated to celebrating the outdoors. We'll be bringing along the NEW mobile MoonBoard, set at a super chilled 25 degrees. You'll also have the chance to compete against your peers in our Moonboard Cliffhanger competition, grab a Moon Climbing bargain from our clearance and sample sale, AND, get a first glimpse of what's to come in our 2016 Autumn-Winter preview... Sheffield city centre will be transformed into a playground for outdoor adventure when the Cliffhanger festival returns this July. Taking place Saturday 9 & Sunday 10 July 2016, this year will be the first time the event is to be held across Sheffield City Centre with FREE entry for everyone. Sheffield is the UKs leading destination for people seeking outdoor adventure, city culture and rural escapes, and relocating the festival to the centre of The Outdoor City brings all of that together. Events and activities will be spread across various locations such as the Peace Gardens, Barkers Pool and Devonshire Green, with dedicated areas for cycling, running and climbing as well as a host of other adventure activities available to try. Once again, the highlight of the weekend will be the BMC British Bouldering Championships, where the nations strongest climbers will battle it out to be crowned king and queen of the wall. Set to take place on Devonshire Green, this national competition is free to watch and will be extended into the evening to take advantage of the warm weather. Make sure you come down for Qualifiers on Saturday and Semi-finals & Finals on Sunday. Cliffhanger events will be taking place across the city centre 10am - 6pm Saturday and Sunday, while the British Bouldering Championships will be running 11am - 7pm both days. There will also be live music in the evening on Devonshire Green Friday night 8pm - 10pm and Saturday night 7pm - 10pm.

The LED moon boards are appearing all over the world, and we always love to hear about your builds, we got sent this email by our LED guru Chad, from Martin over in Guernsey. It looks like they had a brilliant time updating their moon board to the new LED system, it sure looked like thirsty work Hey Chad, Thanks again for your help. I meant to get back to you sooner to let you know how it went, just in case you were interested! I actually finished a few weeks ago, and it's made the moon board so much more fun. So, f**k me, that was a LOT of cutting, stripping, tinning and soldering of wires! Over a long weekend we had a lot of 3am/4am finishes and we consumed a mammoth amount of beer. I was lucky to rope in a couple of other guys or I might have gone insane! When I told one of them we could have bought the LED's from you (near the end), he nearly broke into tears, which frankly made it all worthwhile! Below are a few pictures of the build, and importantly, the finished product. I'm pretty stoked with how it turned out. [gallery link="file" ids="18014,18015,18016,18017,18018,18019,18020,18021"] Thanks again for publishing what you did, and the help! All the best, Martin p.s. On the controls you'll see I changed the message; "Tu Futu" in Guernsey-French means "You're F*cked", which is the Guernsey climbing club's loving encouragement equivalent of "come on buddy!" I'm the hairy one

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
