Ian Dory has made the 7th ascent of Dai Koyamada's the wheel of life, ~8C/+, ~9a+ or what ever you want to call it.
Ian, along with Dave Graham, Nalle Hukkataival and Co. have spent the last month down under and if I interpret Ian's blog correctly he has been working The wheel... more or less the whole time.
Congrats are in order!
Before this, his hardest ascent were a couple of 8B+'s and quite a few 8B's.
I think we'll hear more about Ian soon.
