A couple of days ago, Dai Koyamada finally managed to piece the whole The story of two worlds low start together.
Here is what he says about it:
I completed The story of two worlds low start on 22nd of March.
It was a 5th day of this stay.
Now, here in Ticino it is terribly hot and far from a good condition but I did it in the evening which I found it a bit cooler, the wind was blowing.
The low start consists of 22 moves in my beta.
I started matched in the undercling with double toe hooks. Then I made by body like turn around and this move was so hard.
After it, the original "Story" begins.
This line took me a long long time so I feel really happy now!
I felt it the hardest of my career and maybe 8C+ but, to be honest, I don't know well.
I wait for the repeaters' opinions.
I have movie of my ascent and am going to show it on the internet.
Please look forward to seeing it!
