Pure passion burning inside. It’s not just passion said Rolando Larcher: «After having climbed for thirty years I can’t talk about passion: climbing is a part of me». Rolando opened fifty new routes making the history of climbing and he has still got the enthusiasm of a young boy. Talent, determination, clear ideas and style: these are the ingredients of a champion who has become a model for young people and whose ventures are still amazing. He started with his father, Renato, in 1981, and continues still today together with his family, his wife Letizia, his son Alessandro and his daughter Anna. Rolando’s masterpieces are: Mastro Geppetto va nel globo (Brenta, 1994), Mai più così (Madagascar, 1998), Hotel Supramonte (Sardegna, 1999), La vita che verrà (Brenta, 1999), Larcher-Vigiani (Marmolada, 2000), La Svizzera (Wenden, 2006), Osa, ma non troppo (Patagonia, 2007) and AlexAnna (Marmolada, 2008).
