Andy Gullsten has repeated Chris Sharma's Practice of the Wild, ~8C, at Magic Wood/Averstal, Switzerland.
This steep and notoriously wet problems basically comes out of a dark hole in the ground. If you like slopers and big pinches this could be something for you.
The first ascent, made by Chris in the summer of 2004, most probably wouldn't have happened weren't it for the excellent spotting work by Ty Landman, Tony Lamprecht and your's truly.
On his 27 crags scorecard, Andy comments:
2 short sessions on it. Amazing holds on a massive overhang! Good thing it dried enough so that I could try it. I've been wanting to try this ever since I saw the video of Ty on this .
