There he has climbed New Base Line (8B+).
Dave commented on his blog:
"Woohoo! I'm well pleased I did one of my long term dream climbs - New Base Line 8B+ in Magic Wood. It is one of the most iconic hard problems on the planet and I've seen so many pictures of the world's best boulderers on it and thought it looked line an inspiring line. For years I've wanted to come and try it, but I expected it would only be to see how hard it was. I didn't really dare to think I could do it.
I was able to climb it a lot faster than I expected, on my third session."
