If anyone is questioning whether Switzerland is where things are going down this autumn, well... think again.

As reported before Sean McColl, from Vancouver, Canada, has used the two week break between lead World cups to sample Swiss bouldering.
The conditions couldn't have been better and Sean has made some truly impressive repeats up to ~8B+/C.

On his last day of the trip, at Cresciano, he managed a repeat of Toni Lamprecht's The Dagger, 8B+, and a flash ascent of Extreme ironing, 8A+, another Lamprecht first.

The Dagger, on the Dreamtime-boulder, is the very physical standing start of The story of two worlds (actually it would be the other way around as The Dagger was climbed first), and 27crags mentions Sean saying he was close on the sit.
Whether he means TSOTW or The Dagger sds (Lamprecht), I don't know, but I find the latter quite unlikely as I hear it's notoriously reachy and Sean isn't that tall at all.
