Pure Dreaming Plus 9a+ by Laura Rogora (18)

Sunday, 31 May

Laura Rogora, who has qualified to Tokyo 2021, reports on Insta has done her first 9a+, Pure Dreaming Plus in Arco. It is a 50 meter link-up, mainly in 45-80 degrees overhang, put up by Adam Ondra, which never has been repeated before. Stefano Ghisolfi took the above picture and says,

She definitely has the potential to climb 9b, maybe a long and endurance one and I'm talking about what she can do right now. Who knows in the future... maybe even more. I think the gap between men and women could be even closer." The 18-year-old has now done eleven routes 8c+/9a or harder which is more than any other female. Second picture by Sara Grippo
