Thomas Le Rolland joins Team Rock Tech
My name’s Thomas LE ROLLAND, and I’m a 19 year-old French climber. I’ve been practicing climbing for 12 years, and I compete now in bouldering and lead climbing.
Bouldering is my favorite one. I reached the 20th place in France in the U20 category. I won the departmental championship last year and I will compete this year in senior categorie !
In Lead climbing, I began practicing when I was 7, in which I ranked 20 in the French Cup, taking place during the World Climbing Cup in Briançon. in France, I’m in the top 20 lead climbers.
I recently changed coach and I’m now coached by Ludovic Laurence, previous coach of the French and Belgium teams who won world cup in 90´s. I then called on him to meet my high-level objectives ! My objective is to wear my country’s jersey ! I’m sure I’ll get there and my motivation is flawless for this project ! I have many bouldering projects, or mythic routes I’d like to climb, and my ultimate dream is to be one of the French climbing team members in the Olympic Games in 2028 … I just did my first outdoor 8a(V11) outdoors called “rainbow rocket”. The first of many others that I plan to do.
