I mentioned in a previous post that Dai Koyamada would go back to his Delusion of grandeur sds-project at Chironico once the weather got better, and that's exactly what he did. After only a few days of trying, he made the first ascent.
Here is what Dai says about it:
Yesterday, I did the 'Delusion'-project.
I was really lucky to climb it before it starts to rain here.
For me, the line is a bit harder than 'Der mit dem Fels tanzt', but taller climbers may feel it easier to link into 'Delusion...'.
I named it 'Insanity of grandeur', and I felt it may be soft 8C.
And after that I went to Goschenen and did 'Dulcifer sds', 8B. I t was a really nice line! I was so moved!
