dave_graham_ Teflon Don [8b] up in the Basin. A crucial crimp broke after @dawoods89 's FA, and forced a loco shoulder method to escape the scoop. A rugged lock off to tiny edge, with the help of a small thumb, leads you to the dicey mantle. #weareisland @island_io @fiveten_official @petzl_official @walltopia #trangoworld @frictionlabs @gnarlynutrition @tchadx @fausey 5d

dave_graham_ The brown wall proj in the Basin goes down!!! Thuggy moves lead to a heinous mantle!! GREAT rig!!! Seems around 8B? Good times out there, less rain these days, but good lord, we traded it for heat and some heinous new breed of monster mosquitos, they look like birds!!! @daniemarie791 #weareisland @island_io @fiveten_official @walltopia @petzl_official @frictionlabs @gnarlynutrition #trangoworld @tchadx @fausey #boom 6d

dave_graham_ Super syked to make an ascent of the amazing @dawoods89 highball, Survival of the Fittest [8b] up in Wild Basin. This thing is no joke, a really powerful crux with small crimps and gastons leads into a technical exit which you cannot fall off! Hoping for some more dry weather windows, its been a rough spring here in Colorado with all this inclement weather @daniemarie791 with the #weareisland @island_io @fiveten_official @petzl_official @walltopia #trangoworld @frictionlabs @gnarlynutrition @fausey @tchadx 1w

dave_graham_ Syked to hear @griffinwhiteside took down Somewhere in Between [8b+] out in Magic Wood! Nice work dude! This is a shot from a couple weeks ago of Griff executing the crux move, a crazy tension/torsion move with a very freak bicycle. I miss Switzerland!!! #weareisland @island_io @cole_bradburn @daniemarie791 3w

dave_graham_ Felt great to finally get outside and climb a boulder here in Colorado! Ive been back in the States a little over a week now, and the weather has been super crunk. At least there wont be any forest fires this spring Heres a cool pic from @fausey of the lil compression rig Mysterious Ways [8a+] first done by @alex_manikowski...Good times! #weareisland @island_io @petzl_official @walltopia #trangoworld @frictionlabs @gnarlynutrition @tchadx 3w

dave_graham_ Riders on the Storm [8b] is an amazing problem. Crazy world cup start leads you into a cryptic high-step crux with a sick gaston, and its def not low ball. So many hidden classics lurking around this forest, its tough to move on from such a majestic place! Hoping for the some wind and sunshine these last climbing days, it would be so sick to finish a few more rigs!! 🏻🏻 #weareisland @island_io @fiveten_official @petzl_official @walltopia @gnarlynutrition @frictionlabs @daniemarie791 1mon

dave_graham_ Took down From Shallow Waters to Riverbed [8b+] some days ago, what a good one! I found the start to be a real pain in the ass, but once I actually sorted a good sequence the rig went down real quick. Time is ticking down for this trip and its going to be a race against the imminent bad weather to take down the last projects! Crunch time!!! #weareisland @island_io @fiveten_official @walltopia @petzl_official #trangoworld @gnarlynutrition @frictionlabs 1mon

dave_graham_ Sent Mystic Stylez [8b+] yesterday with a last try best try effort, what a surprise!! Had some nice temps after the rain, but the forest was still quite wet, so expectations weren't very high. The problem is only five hands moves, but theres crazy shit to do with your feet as well, so its very short; fell about six times going for the jump at the end, prolly 60 more just slipping off the middle, another 10 times just trying to move the feet...Needless to say I was super worked, and the towel was already thrown! Just for old times sake, pulled on for one last go as the darkness set in, and BAM!!! Crazy!!! Its easy to think climbing is about power and conditions, but sometimes its just a concept of head space and executing the proper positons. I love it!! Nice rig @dawoods89 #weareisland @island_io @petzl_official @fiveten_official #trangoworld @gnarlynutrition @frictionlabs photo by Seb!!! 2mon

dave_graham_ Climbed one of my ultimate lifetime nemisis rigs yesterday here in Magic Wood, the classic Never Ending Story [8b+], which was first ascended by @chris_sharma like ten years ago! Managed a quick send of One Summer in Paradise [8b] directly after, which was really enjoyable after so much failure on harder projects oooof. Hoping for some dry winds so the rest of the wet shit dries, and more take downs !!! #weareisland @island_io @fiveten_official @petzl_official @walltopia @gnarlynutrition @frictionlabs #trangoworld 2mon

dave_graham_ Guiliani Cameroni trying the amazing @dawoods89 rig La Force Tranquile [8C] in Magic Wood. Super fun climbing with the new generation of Swiss boulderers!! #weareisland @island_io @fiveten_official 2mon

dave_graham_ Got hooked up yesterday with SICK conditions down here in Ticino and managed to take down the amazing Insanity of Grandeur [8c] !!! The Foune (crazy Swiss Alp weather phenom) was blowing full force, drying everything from the weeks of rain nearly instantly, SO sick!!! This boulder has a very complex and powerful lower sequence, then the styles switch quite radically to resistant techy Chironico climbing on ramps! Hoping for more dry days like this one and more take downs!! #weareisland @island_io @fiveten_official @petzl_official @walltopia #trangoworld @frictionlabs @gnarlynutrition 2mon

dave_graham_ Posted up here in Magic Wood battling the snow and rain which spring usually brings an abundance of here in Switzerland. Goin for it on whatever is dry, and really hoping there will be some windows for success. The last time It was cold and dry was the last time I sent a hard boulder! The classic Nem 8b+, down in Varazze. Cold dry conditions are the make or break for topping rigs out, but if your aren't chasing them, you will most likely be missing them! Heres to the hunt! All part of the game!! by @the_burrow_photography #weareisland @island_io @fiveten_official @petzl_official @walltopia #trangoworld @frictionlabs @gnarlynutrition 2mon

dave_graham_ Still posted up here in Varazze! Progress on Gioia has been a little stunted by this crazy humid marine layer thats settled in over the region, but we are still goin a muerte, sampling lots of the areas classics and dialin the beta in on the big rig. Weather should be better the next couple days, then the monsoon hits. Go time! #unphased #positivity #humidity #weareisland @island_io by @bearcam @petzl_official @fiveten_official @walltopia @gnarlynutrition @frictionlabs @dawoods89 @daniel_beall @theburrophotography 3mon

dave_graham_ Havin a blast bouldering here in Varazze!! This place is super cool!! Thousands of crazy metamorphic boulders hidden in the tailings of the Alps with reach all the way to the sea. TONS of hard stuff here to try, including the infamous Gioia. This first week has been a mad rush to try all the sickest rigs and dial in the hard stuff, now its time for some takedowns!! Thanks @bearcam for the sick of Raptor Survives [8b+] #weareisland @island_io @fiveten_official @petzl_official @walltopia #trangoworld @frictionlabs @gnarlynutrition @dawoods89 @daniel_beall @theburrophotography 3mon

dave_graham_ Climbed the classic Triton rig out at Arthurs Rock the other day in between snow storms. Had a serious strugglefest on it but somehow managed to beat that grease and hold this swing! Thanks for vid @orourker!! #weareisland @island_io @fiveten_official @petzl_official @walltopia @gnarlynutrition @frictionlabs #trangoworld 3mon

dave_graham_ Back at it up on the legendary @dawoods89 rig Hypnotized Minds. The weather seems to be offering up a rare window, so its time to swoop. by @lindsey.dolan #weareisland @island_io @fiveten_official @petzl_official @walltopia #trangoworld @gognarly @frictionlabs #hypno @daniemarie791 @fausey 4mon

dave_graham_ Had a blast climbing in Roy the last couple days instead of warring with the Colorado snow and got the pleasure of climbing this SICK new 8B prow that the legendary @silvdawg put up recently. A true five star boulder, something incredibly difficult to find on this planet. Im very impressed with the size and quality of stone littered amongst the crazy bands of sandstone, some more exploration is in serious order!! #weareisland @island_io @fiveten_official @walltopia @petzl_official #trangoworld @fausey @tchadx 4mon

dave_graham_ This project we have tried up in Upper Upper seems too slip through my fingers every Fall, just before the winter reclaims Chaos Canyon. Boulders with a temporal existence always intrigue me. It may not be the industry standard for a "king line" but this is one of the coolest projects I know of in RMNP. @carolinelovesphotos with the amazing shot!! #weareisland @island_io @walltopia @fiveten_official @petzl_official #trangoworld @gognarly @frictionlabs 4mon

dave_graham_ A nice screengrab from the @island_io footage we shot out in Red Rocks of a sick @carlodenali rig named Reflecting Pool 8B. #weareisland @fiveten_official @petzl_official @walltopia #trangoworld 4mon
