Bumaye for Graham

Dave Graham finished off the old year in a good way, making the second ascent of Dani Andrada's Bumaye*, the 8c+ everyone knows is 9a, at the Laboratory, Margalef. Extremely strong climbers like Usobiaga, Mrazek and Cardwell have tried it without success, and these are guys that normally do an 8c+ before, or even during, breakfast.
Dave also made some progress on the First round, first minute project, and says he's syked.
*Sounds a bit like what people say to Muhammad Ali in When we were kings: "Ali, buma ye", meaning "Ali, kill him!". Great movie by the way!
