After Austin Purdy and Michiel Nieuwenhuijsen, Jakob Schubert can now climb ‘The Story of 2 Worlds’ in Cresciano, Switzerland. After ‘Off the wagon‘ (8B +) it was Jakob’s second difficult boulder on his short trip in Switzerland. The ‘story’ was first started by Dave Graham in 2010. The name of the boulder refers to the “very soft” that was common at the time “Ratings. For the boulder it was the 26th ascent.
“Succesful short trip to Cresciano with @alfons_dornauer . My main goal was to send @dave_graham_ ‘s legendary ‚The Story of Two Worlds‘ [~8C] . I’ve already tried it a few years ago but this time I felt much stronger and took it down on the first day. Today I went to the back of the block and grabbed an ascent of ‚Somnolence‘ [8b] a really fun one!”
