Paul Robinson Sends Dreamtime

In Switzerland, while we here in America celebrated Thanksgiving, Paul Robinson made the third post-
break ascent of Fred Nicole's famous problem Dreamtime at Cresciano. Paul gave the problem 8B+
 (approx.V14), which is the grade also suggested by Adam Ondra for his post-break ascent in 2009.  On
 his blog, Paul says that the problem is definitely harder than it was before, because "instead of jumping
 to the lip from a perfect sidepull, you now have to battle 2 small crimps before making a near static pull
 to the lip."  During Paul's several month long stay in Switzerland, he has also managed four other 8B+
 problems and one 8C (V15) first ascent.  Good luck Paul in finishing off your Swiss-list before you leave 
for Font!
