Carlo Traversi has repeated Dave Graham's The Story of 2 worlds, ~8C, at Cresciano, Switzerland.
Carlo says he was close to doing it already on the fourth day but that he then kept falling at the end for five days or so.
A couple of days ago, he told me he had fallen off the end of Story of 2 Worlds probably 10 times now, total mental battle, not tired or anything, just keep making stupid mistakes...
So, what made the difference in the end?
Rest and healing the splits in my right hand, but it could have happened anytime.
Carlo now has six days left in Switzerland and says he is very close on a potential 8C at Brione. Only problem now is the weather which has been quite unstable lately, meaning it's wet... Fingers crossed!
