Late in the season, when temperature and humidity perhaps shouldn't really allow it, Dave Graham has made the second ascent of Daniel Woods' Spray of light, Font 8C, at the Dihedral Boulders in Rocklands, South Africa.

SUPER SYKED!!! Finally managed to make the 2nd ascent of @dawoods89 new power test-piece Spray of Light [8c] after struggling HARD with the heat and humidity we have been dealing with over the last month!!!
