di

The short film directed by Riky Felderer about Jacopo Larcher and his recent discovery of crack climbing and and trad climbing.

It's never to late to learn something new. This is the message that comes from this short film directed by Riky Felderer that documents the latest evolution of Jacopo Larcher, the talented climber from Italy's South Tyrol who as a supremely strong sports climber – read 9a redpoint at Siurana and 8b+ onsight at Montsant – nevertheless felt the need to go back to square one. And ignore the tinniest bolt-protected crimps and instead learn how to climb a huge 6a crack, discover the art of jamming hands and fingers and begin trusting trad gear, i.e. those famous nuts and friends. For this rediscovery of the climbing game Larcher set off from the world crack climbing Mecca Indian Creek in the USA, to then test his mettle at Yosesigo and Cadarese in Italy.
