Dave Graham has made what I believe is the 6th ascent of Dai Koyamada's mega link-up roof climb The wheel of life in the Hollow Mountain Cave, Grampians, Australia.

At 60+ moves, the climb isn't comparable to many other and is therefor very difficult to grade. It has been called everything from 8B+ to 8C+, via 9a and 9a+...

Previous ascents has been made by Koyamada, Chris Webb-Parsons, Ethan Pringle, James Kassay and Ben Cossey.

Dave comments on fb: Sent the Wheel of Life yesterday, feeling all liberated, looking forward, one more life goal is completed...

Soon, very soon even, Dave Graham and Co's Island website will be live. This time it's for real too.

Here's Chris making the 2nd ascent. (Yes, I know the soundtrack is incredible, but I don't know where to get it.)
