8c+ etc by Graham, #1

At Billeger, Switzerland Dave Graham grabbed the second ascent of Hans Peter Bodmer’s unrated 20 meter testpiece Passion. Dave needed only three tries to come to terms with the crimpy route. Though the line is speculated to be 8c+, Bodmer refrained from rating the route because of the extensive amount of time he spent working it. Graham begged off rating the route as well, saying, “It’s definitely harder than any 8c+ in America — that’s for sure.” Graham also sent two 8c´s in three tries each at Billeger: Ciao Guido and Mission Miranda and opened Pilgrimage, 8b+.
