I did The Story of Two World 8C today!!!! These days, it is too hot and greasy. It was almost 20 degree hot today, but I found good solution and manage to do it.

ストーリー登れました。体調もコンディションも最悪でかなり苦戦しましたが何とか。昨年自転車で事故ってからなかなかしんどい時期が続いていましたがやっと悪い流れを断ち切れたと思います。いましさんが写真撮ってくれました!!

Finally I was lucky to send it. I think that it is a soft 8C right now with all the beta there is, but still harder than 8B+.

Dziękuje wszystkim za gratulacje! Jeszcze dziś, nie mogę uwierzyć, że moje pierwsze 8C już za mną!✌ Teraz mogę się z Wami podzielić tym, jak mniej więcej wyglądała "godzina 0" 😜 Było to dla mnie totalnym zaskoczeniem że wszystko zagrało jak należy ;) Dzięki raz jeszcze Christof Rauch i Sebastianowi Cotting za wsparcie i doping! 💪 Ale oczywiście największe podziękowania należą się mojej wspaniałej żonie, bez której te wszystkie skałki nie byłyby możliwe!😘 Thank you all for your congratulations! Even today, I can not believe that my first 8C is already done! ✌ Now I can share with you how it looks like 😜 Thanks once again to @christof rauch and Sebastian Cotting for support and cheering! Of course, the biggest thanks belongs to my wonderful wife, without her all these rocks would not be possible!

Cotting: The Story of Two Worlds 8B+
There’s always a way to do it better - Find it!“ And I found it. Enough to climb Dave Graham’s masterpiece „The Story of Two Worlds“. 3.5 years of trying and specific training. It was a crazy journey. After all the Betas we found (kneebar, heel-toe-lock), I think "Story" is closer to 8B+ than to 8C. Thanks to everybody, who helped me, to find all this crucial micro-betas. Regarding the low start: It basically adds only one more move. The first move and to put the knee bar is harder too. But no, there is almost no difference to the normal start (it's just nicer :). But keep in mind: With the NEW Betas. The low start was for sure harder for Dai. Not to mention how insanely difficult his Beta is for the whole "Story". My greatest respect to Dai!
