Jacopo Larcher's RiseFri Night Vid

© Paolo Sartori/The North Face

This week's Friday Night Video documents Italian climber Jacopo Larcher's journey from a bouldering and sport specialist to one of the world's best trad climbers. His recent project Tribe (UKC news) - which Jacopo refused to grade in order to focus on the process of working it and the beauty of the line - is the subject of the film.

Perched high in the woodland of Cadarese, Northern Italy, 'Tribe' is a bold and run-out route, showcasing the very best of trad climbing, far removed from Jacopo's bouldering specialist background. It's likely one of the hardest trad lines in the world, if not the hardest.
