On 14/09 Rolando Larcher the Italian Rolando Larcher made the first ascent of the "La Grande Onda - Big Wave"

In mid-September the Italian Rolando Larcher made the first ascent of the "La Grande Onda - Big Wave". Located deep in the Dolomites on the Torre Sprit, this 500m route clocks in at 8a. Larcher is well-known for his hard multi-pitch ascents, including Hotel Supramonte in Sardinia. According to Larcher this route represents a step forward with respect to many of his previous routes, for this line is characterised by long run outs, even after crux moves.
