Austin Purdy holt sich eine Begehung von "The Story of 2 Worlds" (8C)

Nach Austin Purdy konnte mit „The Story of 2 Worlds“ im schweizerischen Cresciano seinen ersten 8C -Boulder klettern. Die Story wurde im Jahr 2010 von Dave Graham erstbegangen. Der Name des Boulders bezieht sich auf das zu dieser Zeit üblichen „sehr weichen“ Bewertungen. Für den Boulder war es die nun schon 24. Begehung.

„It took me 1 session to send the Dagger and then an additional 4 to send Story, although one of those it was raining and the entire ending was wet. Sending Story meant a lot to me because at the time I started climbing the hardest established boulders in the world were 8C and it was a grade that was only reserved for the best climbers in the world, so to me climbing a boulder that hard reaching a level in my own climbing that I never thought I would be able to achieve. Not only that, but the intricacy of the movement of the boulder and the role it played in the possible shift of the 8C grade (since it was so much harder than other 8C’s at the time with the old beta) is something that has intrigued me since I first saw videos of the line and learned about its history.“. It was set up by Dave Graham in 2010 and the name refers to the inflated grading system at the time. „It took me 1 session to send the Dagger and then an additional 4 to send Story, although one of those it was raining and the entire ending was wet.
