To no one's great surprise, except perhaps his own, Jimmy Webb has repeated Dave Graham's The Story of two worlds, ~8C, at Cresciano, Switzerland.
He says he is stoked to have climbed it and that the ascent came as a bit of a surprise after having fallen off the top four times the day before.
Jimmy has now spent almost three weeks in Ticino, and repeated five problems in the ~8C range. According to him, four of those are more likely to be "hard 8B+'s" or so, but not The story....
Between the hard problems, he has also found some time to play around on the easy stuff, repeating five 8B's and flashing five 8A+'s.
