Gabriele Moroni has repeated Dave Graham's The Story of two worlds, ~8C, at Cresciano, Switzerland.
Dave made the first ascent in January 2005 and this was the 6th repeat after:Dai Koyamada*
It took more than five years for the problem to see a second ascent, but since then it has now had six repeats in four years. The reason is of course that the beta has been refined and commonly (well..) known through videos.
Saying that, the ideal method to solve this particular problem varies quite a bit mainly depending on how tall the climber is.
This was Gabri's second 8C of the season after Insanity of Grandeur at Chironico which he climbed in December.
