Preheat the grill to medium with the grate at the lowest setting. On a rimmed baking sheet or in a large plastic bag, toss the asparagus with the olive oil. Lightly coat the grill grate with oil. Arrange the asparagus on the grill perpendicular to the bars of the grate. Grill until just tender but not limp, about 4 to 5 minutes. Use tongs to roll the asparagus oncce or twice during cooking. Lay a slice of prosciutto on a work surface. Place 4 to 6 asparagus spears over the prosciutto near a short edge. Sprinkle the asparagus with some pepper. Tightly roll the prosciutto over the asparagus on a slight diagonal, creating a tight bundle. The tips of the asparagus should show. Sprinkle the bundles with Parmesan.
