Almost literally moments ago (literally Wednesday morning), Dave Graham, Cameron Maier and Co have touched down in South Africa after a rather successful couple of months in Oz. I'm sure there will be plenty of stories, photos and videos pretty soon.

This video of Cameron's however was shot earlier this year in Colorado's Rocky Mountain National Park (RMNP), in Wild Basin to be precise.

It features David Graham making the first ascents of the following problems:

Seal Pup V10/11 (7C+/8A)
The Grey* V14 (8B+)
Dead Meadow* V13 (8B)
Sparkle motion* V11 (8A)

As always when Dave is involved, there are plenty of odd and funky sequences.
