Great video, amazing climbing
i love how much it meant to him on finally completing the problem , he actually nearly burst out crying before topping it out ! meant a lot ! 2 years on a project god i get pissed off after 2 go's !
Looks a little on the powerful side to me so i will stick to the slabs ,,,,
Go Dai! Shame on the doubters!!
His new start looks good. Will everyone (can't be too many) who's already done it now come and try this? Possibly not...

Very oddly enjoyable and kudos for the dedication.
Fantastic stuff, brilliant wee story.

Great video. Inspiring to see what can be achieved.
Keep crushing Dai!
Amazing vid! Really inspiring stuff!
Just out of interest, anyone know what shoes he was wearing?
In 2011 he apparently wasn't sponsored by evolve. He's got madrocks on.
But it shows them as Evolvs, and they looked just like Evolvs? Or am I mistaken here? At then end it showed shoes that looked like Shamans except covered totally in rubber, were they unique?

"Right now we are developing a model with my idea. I'm excited about how it'll come out."
Maybe we just got our first preview?
Oh yeah that makes sense..
