German climbing phenom Alex Megos and climbing presenter/photographer Liam Lonsdale will be making the journey to MelloBlocco next week. The duo have been shooting together in Megos’ home area of the Frankenjura and have decided that they want to visit the worlds’ biggest bouldering festival while they are working together.
Liam has visited the festival for four consecutive years as a photographer; 2017 will be the first time for Alex. During the festival they are hoping to see as much of the area as possible, whilst also competing in the Melloblocco competition.
Alex is widely regarded as one of the best climbers in the world; the first person to onsight the grade of f9a back in 2013 and has since gone on to climb x3 f9b’s, multiple f9a+’s and has also bouldered V15 / font 8c with the third ascent of Lucid Dreaming in the Buttermilks USA. No stranger to competitions, in 2017 Alex has already won the infamous CWIF in Sheffield and Masters de Boulder in Chile.
Liam is known for his work on competitions such as the world famous Adidas Rockstars, the iconic La Sportiva Legends Only, Hard Moves and most recently the Black Diamond Project event in Klättercentret, Stockholm. Liam is an award winning photographer, with a portfolio of work that has been published worldwide.
You will be able to catch Alex and Liam at the event between May 11th and 13th. Make sure to say hi!
