"The Story of 2 Worlds"

“The Story of two Worlds” by Christof Rauch

Back in 2018 my friend Christof Rauch climbed Dave Graham's classic 'The Story of Two Worlds' ( 8C/V15 ) in Cresciano. He got filmed by Pawel Jelonek. A little bit later he also made a repeat of Dai Koyamada's low start. Both ascents meant a lot to him and in his own words: "A dream became reality! When I climbed "The Dagger" for the first time I don't thought that I could climb this problem ever! But a few weeks ago I found some new microbetas and it felt so much easier. At first I made a teamascent of the normal start together with Pawel. Afterwards I checked out the lower moves with no big expectations. Sometimes it seems like this is the key to success and after a hell of a fight I stood on top of this amazing boulder and nabbed the second ascent. Thanks to the awesome crew!"
