Earlier this year, Slovenian Jernej Kruder made the 4th ascent of Dave Graham's The story of two worlds, ~8C, at Cresciano, Switzerland. Now there's a video.
The problem, which now has three different starts, has previously been repeated by Dai Koyamada* and Paul Robinson.**
*Dai Koyamada first made what turned out to be a legit repeat, and then, because of a misunderstanding regarding the starting position, went back twice before he succeeded in making a lower start.
**Paul Robinson, due to the same misunderstanding, started two moves lower than the original, something that caused him considerable difficulties.
