JACOPO LARCHER Born in South Tyrol, where he grew up. Jacopo came to Innsbruck to study. He had started out as a competition climber, but slowly but surely veered towards hard trad and multipitch climbing. Besides some good results in competitions, Jacopo has repeated Rhapsody (8c+), one of the world’s hardest trad routes, as well a free ascent of El Nino (8a+) on El Capitan.
Jacopo loves how diverse the challenges you find in the world of rock climbing are. When he is not traveling the world, he works as a routesetter in gyms and competition.
