Pure Dreaming 9a by Laura Rogora (19)

Tuesday, 26 May

Laura Rogora, who has qualified for the Olympics, reports on Insta that she has done Pure Dreaming 9a in Arco in just eight tries. "It is an endurance test. The hardest moves are after 20 meters of sustained climbing (8b+). The key to send it is to climb fast and exploit the rest point on that part in order to reach the boulder with enough power."

In total, the 153 cm tall has now done 10 routes graded 8c+/9a or harder which is most out of all females. Last year she moved from Rome to Arco.

How does the climbing scene differ in between Rome and Arco? The crags around Rome are 1.30-2 hours from the city and almost everything is already bolted. There are still a few interesting projects but in Arco the situation ss totally different. There are more hard routes and still a lot to be climbed and bolted just nearby.
