As always, there is a great write up on his blog, but in short:
- The footage of Ty Landman climbing the problem is what made Dave go to Magic wood in the first place
- He saw and tried the problem for the first time in 2012 and decided it was way too hard
- He made a replica on his board and couldn't do it...until he, after a lot of research on how, lost weight and could do it easily
- He went to Magic Wood and repeated the real thing
Dave also made quick work of Steppenwolf and Dark sakai, both 8B, and a couple of weeks ago, we reported about his repeat of From shallow waters to Riverbed, 8B+.
