The Italian climbing area Laghel near Arco near Lake Garda, known as one of the most difficult climbing areas in Italy and the world, is currently closed for climbing. The high-end climbing garden Laghel, with some of the hardest sport climbing in the world, including the two 9b’s ‚One Slap‘ and ‚Queen Line‘, which was first ascented by Adam Ondra and has only been repeated by Stefano Ghisolfi, are on private grounds. Now the owner has decided to closed access to the area.

Stefano: „The owner has the right to do so, but the problem is that Laghel is not a usual crag but is something unique in Arco and in Italy“ explained the 26-year-old climber, adding that „We will try to find a deal with the owner, but for now please don’t go to Laghel and hope everything will go in the best way possible.“
