We got a new report from Dai Koyamada:
It is very hot here in Ticino like a summer.
I went to try [The] Story [of two worlds] yesterday but it was not good, too hot!
Then I moved to Sustenpass and did Phase 2 8B+. I think it is the 3rd ascent [after Ueli Gygax and Fred Nicole].
I felt a bit easy for 8B+, but it is a very good line!
For me, the getting there (the approach) was harder.
I also did Fred's, 8A+, and Zentrale traverse, 8A, too.
The conditions are perfect now in Sustenpass.
