The weather hasn't exactly been the best in Ticino so far this autumn, but at least the temps seem to have dropped now. Too bad this has meant snow... The American boys do what they can though, climbing anything that's dry. Carlo and Paul Robinson both made quick work of Mithril, 8B, at Cresciano, commenting that a low start is certainly a possibility.
Paul's main focus now will be on the really hard and classic stuff, such as Dreamtime, The story of 2 worlds, Ninja skills, Big paw... etc.
"America... fuck yeah!"
