For a long time nothing was heard from 19-year-old Italian Laura Rogora. Now what is currently the strongest female climber in the world sends the first repetition of the Stefano Ghisolfi route „Terapia d’urto“ (9a +). Stefano was only able to open up the bouldering route on the „Parete di Padaro“ in March this year. For Laura it was the third 9a + route after „The Bow“ and „Pure Dreaming Plus“
Laura thus further underpins her current exceptional position after she was able to climb her first 9b route with „Alí Hulk extension total (sit)“ in Rodellar, Spain, last year. After Angy Eiter, she was the second woman who has succeeded so far.
