Delirium, Font 8C, by Dave Graham

Dave Graham has repeated Jimmy Webb's Delirium, Font 8C, at Mount Evans, Colorado. Delirium starts like The Wheel of Wolvo, Font 8C, but exits more direct via Dismantling the enemy, a hard and powerful 8A+.

Jimmy made the first ascent in September 2013 and it was repeated shortly afterwards by Daniel Woods.

Made the 3rd ascent of Delirium [8c] last night up at Wolvoland after the big thunderstorm ⚡️⚡️⚡️ YESSSSS!!!! ... 7 days of effort spread over the last three weeks. Super challenging conditions this June! Extreme heat, thunderstorms, or just pure rain made the send seem like a pipe dream, especially after falling off the last move two separate occasions with the same disastrous heel slip punting.

Next for Dave is a trip to South Africa, so hopefully we'll soon hear more from him. Until then, there's always the podcast.
