Graham credits Koyamada's 2010 ascent

EDITORIAL

16 December 2012

Dave Graham put up The Story of Two World in Cresciano as an an 8C in order to stop the grade inflation. "It was such a nice challenge for me. It will be really nice someday to have people talk about how cool the moves are of this amazing boulder, the story, and not just wonder about the start and the grade." Dave says he thinks Dai Koyamada already in 2010 repeated it as details with identical starts and finishes are not important as long as you start sitting and when the difficulty is the same. "My beta is much harder! It was not the smartest. It should not be considered as a hard 8C any longer. It cant be 8C+ if you ask me... but "personal" grades matter." Graham also wanted to say that the new released video with a dab going into The Dagger is not for the actual send.
