February, 28th, Laura Rogora, young Italian climber of Rome, did Grandi Gesti at Grotta dell’Arenauta, Sperlonga, living to Italy the first female 9a. A great success for this incredible climber that here speaks about her ascent.
Great work Laura! So young and able to do a 9a route. What did you have in mind the days after??
Oh, thanks! Honestly, when I listened the alarm clock, I still wanted to sleep and did not go to school! I didn’t sleep a lot during the night, I was really euphoric. I spent some minutes to realized…
What do you think toh ave your name near to climbers like Eiter, Shiraishi, Markovic, ecc?
I saw their videos with admiration! Naturally for me it’s a great honor.
During your work on the route, there was a particolar moment when you thought that the climb was possible for you?
The third days, I did the boulder of the route and starting from the fall I reached the top. In that moment I realized that the ascent was possible, it’s was a time point.
Say something about the route: we know that you had some problem in particolar in the high section.
Yes, the high part was the last I resolved. It’s a very morphological section and I had to find some others holds to use to climb but I arrived in that point always very tired and fell four times before to pass.
Why “Grandi Gesti”? It is particolar congenial for you or only a convenience situation cause is near to home?
It’s real, it’s near my home and is also the olny 9a in the area but it has always fascinated me a lot; a wonderful trip on the roof of the cave…
Your secret weapon?
I think a good rest before the last boulder. I did it with much more enery!
