Ian Dory is back in Australia again with Dave Graham and Nalle Hukkataival after a successful 2011 trip that he recapped in this excellent report. In that post Dory mentions his efforts on Dai Koyamada’s Grampians testpiece The Wheel Of Life:
Overall the climb is a combination of 5 boulder problems: v9, v12, v9, v11, v8. After climbing with James Kassay I have been incredibly motivated to come back and take it down next trip. But what James has also taught me is that this climb takes time and is truly hands down difficult.
It looks like Dory’s motivation paid off as he was able to complete the full problem for its likely 7th ascent a few days ago.
