James Kassay has, finally, bagged The Wheel of life, ~8C+, Dai Koyamada's ~65 move mega link-up in the Hollow Mountain Cave, Grampians, Australia. This was the 4th ascent after Dai, Chris Webb-Parsons and Ethan Pringle.
On facebook, he comments that It may have been many years in the making... But today I was fortunate enough to complete the Grampians test piece... The Wheel Of Life! Yay for me!!! :)
Apparently not totally content with that, he later jumped on again and went for a direct version. No success this time, but maybe in the near future?
