When Rolando Larcher first tried on a pair of climbing shoes they were not the downturned, sticky footwear that we have access to today. They were boots and to climb you had to go to the mountains. 30 years later, he has established hundreds of sport climbs and multi-pitches around his hometown of Trento in northern Italy. Rolando is still as passionate about climbing as when he first touched the rock all those years ago.
