Jan Hojer is once again tearing it up in Ticino, Cresciano to be exact. The latest problem to fall was Fred Nicole's classic Dreamtime, which, after a crucial hold broke a couple of years ago weighs in around hard 8B+ or "easy" 8C.
So, what's next for the young German?
I'm super psyched to try the Story [of two Worlds, ~8C]! Tried it briefly after both sessions on Dreamtime and found some good beta... I nearly did the Dagger [second part of The Story...] yesterday but with a little dab on that tree, so I have to do it again.
The additional moves of The Story took me only 5 tries but I don't know if I have enough time to link the whole thing...
Resting today [Tuesday] -> trying tomorrow -> rain on Thursday -> leaving on Friday.
Good luck Jan!
