Dave Graham – Dreamtime

In commemoration of his sending Realization, here is a quality video from 2002 of Dave Graham climbing Dreamtime (V14*) at Cresciano, Switzerland.

*The fact that Dreamtime was the first boulder in the world to have a suggested grade of V15 when Fred Nicole made the brilliant FA in 2000 is only the beginning of the controversy with this problem. Allegations of hold “improvement” through “aggressive brushing” have perhaps tainted the difficulty of recent repeats while Dave himself has maintained that it was always “only” V14. Either way it is a really incredible problem to see climbed on video.

For a full slate of videos of different climbers sending Dreamtime check out the Dr. Topo blog. Featured are Bernd Zangerl, Chris Sharma, Dai Koyamada, Nalle Hukkutaival, Christian Core and Ty Landman. The post is a great idea that I frankly wish I would have thought of.
