Dave Graham completes Hazel Grace Sit

Dave Graham reports on Instagram that he has completed Hazel Grace Sit (8C/+) in Gottardo / Gotthardpass, which he started to try in 2004. The FA was done by Guiliano Cameroni in 2021 after 38 days of effort, including the FA of the 8B+ stand in 2018, which Graham also did that year. (c) Rainer Eder

"This summer, I delved into crafting my own way, an entirely different method then what had been done, including a wild and ultra low percentage triple bump of a mono like pocket, only resolvable with a “magic shoe”.

Earlier this autumn, the 41-year-old did the FA of Adularia (8C) also in Gottardo / Gotthardpass and in total, he has reported having done eight 8B+ to 8C+ in 2023. Last year, Dave sent eleven boulders 8B+ to 8C+.
