The Story of Two Worlds, Martin Stráník

The Story of Two Worlds, Martin Stráník

Martin Stráník has repeated The story of two worlds, ~8C, David Graham's sit down start to The Dagger on the Dreamtime boulder at Cresciano, Switzerland. "The story of two worlds was quite a great process over five days. I started with working on The Dagger and after two days it was done. After I tried the first moves of "Story" and though that I would be able to make a fast ascent, but temperature was not on my side... Every day I woke up early in the morning to give some serious attemps, but I wasn't even close. Finally yesterday (17.11.2015), the temperature dropped and it was something different and much "easier". Now the problem was not a link to The Dagger but connected with all The Dagger moves. You know it is quite a long boulder... Finally I was lucky to send it. I think that it is a soft 8C right now with all the beta there is, but still harder than 8B+. It's interesting how this problem has gone from "hard 8C or even 8C+", via "the benchmark for 8C" to "soft 8C", and difficult to know how much of this change is due to new beta and how much is a widening of the 8C-grade."
