Pippo Cervo: a boulderman greedy for chiks...
by FreakClimbing.com September 2003
When you idealize a "boulder-man" you usually think at a funny guy with a strange hat, a massive body and a strange device behind his shoulders...well this time you have to reset your mind because your are in front of sport climber "damn" strong bouldering. This atypical boulderer never does boulder on rock, climbs sport routes, eats as a pig drinking "spriz" and only does bouldering for competitions.
We are proud to present you "Pippo" Cervo (that means stag in italian...) and his summer adventures!
After an unluky year (2002) with a serious injury to an elbow, Pippo couldn't resist to the rock recall, and he punished her!
Everybody already knew about the power of this funny guy, but after that bad year...I wouldn't bid a chicken on him! Well, before his summer holydays he was fifth in Italian Bouldering Cup (Bardonecchia), and this barbarian did a terroristic attak to Ceüse few days later: two 8a onsight, 2 at his first try, and a lot of other 7c+ and 7c onsight: luckily in those few days he didn't try nothing harder!!
If you aim at being a "Cervian" boulderman, I suggest you his typical diet based on a lot of chicken, and ...chicks: better if experienced!
