Paul Robinson has now come even closer than that to repeating Dave Graham's The story of two worlds, 8C+, at Cresciano, Switzerland. Some would even argue he has already done it.
The only thing that went wrong on the otherwise perfect attempt, was he touched a tree slightly while swinging out on what he describes as a "6C move".

A dab is a dab... and as Paul so eloquently put it: "Damn tree."
