by Mick Ryan Schule des Lebens 8b Chris Davies of Llanberis is a full-time family man and works as a custodian of difficult youths. He is also first ascensionist of Wales´ second hardest boulder problem, East Coker 8b/+ (V13/14) at Parisella´s (as well as Compact Culture 8b/V13, Full Circle 8b and Daisy From Concrete 8b) Like most of us he likes to get away now and again, and has just returned from a two week trip to Switzerland where he put his Parisella´s Cave power to good use. Enjoying great conditions, dry and cool, he managed to repeat Fred Nicole´s Le Prou 8b at Cresciano; Dave Grahams Electric Ant 8b at 101, Chironico; Uaeli Gaigax´s 8b Schule des Lebens at Chironico, and also a flash of the 8a+/V12 Deliverance also at Chironico.
