While Gabri Moroni was back home for a few days to sort out his business, David Lama got back to work on the Dave Graham-project in the Berlin sector at Céüse. He was close a few years ago, but was unable to seal the deal.
Gabri described the route as long and sustained, not so steep, with small pockets all the way and very long run-outs, like a mountain-route.
He was about to start making lead attempts, so it seems the a little friendly competition was what was needed to geet it done.
I don't know anything about a name yet, but in terms of difficulty it's around 8c+. A great addition to the sector!
