Laura Rogora is one of the leading Youth climbers in the competition scene and has just climbed a new 5.14c/d.
Her new route is called Sitting Bull and is at Collepardo and links Bruce Lee with Crazy Horse. After her send she climbed Calligaman 5.13 on her second attempt.
Rogora’s first 5.14d was in 2014 with a send of Grandi Gesti in Italy and her second was in 2015 with Joe-Cita in Spain.
Also back in 2015, Rogora made the first ascent of La Gasparata 5.14c/d at Collepardo near her home city Rome. La Gasparata was one of the hardest first ascents ever made by someone so young.
Rogora will be competing in the Youth World Cup this year and will be heading to Buenos Aires for the Youth Olympic Games this fall.
