After months of nursing a hand injury, Dave Graham is back in Europe and back to cranking hard. Last week, he completed a 30-move boulder problem in Fionnay, Switzerland, near the residence he has taken up at the resort town of Verbier. Scarred for Life (8b+/V14, and “maybe harder” according to Graham’s comment on www.8a.nu) is a massive roof problem. He worked on the boulder for at least four days before sending.
