About Dai Koyamada's ascent (february 2010, other photos) Shige Moriya wrote here :
"Dai reported about grade of The Story of Two World.
He thinks, it is not 8C for him.
It is probably 8C/C+ or 8C+.
Otherwise, most of the existing 8C and 8B+ has to be considered for downgrading if it is standard 8C as Dave Graham graded.
He also mentioned that he would like to respect first ascent person's opinion. 
One more thing. It was not normal sent for him. Because it was raining a lot and his chance was limited. If he sent it in good condition, maybe he could sent it quicker.

8c/V15 "new standard", or 8c/+

27cragsclimbervoice8a and many others are amazing sites, but sometimes, expecially if you worked a lot to envision, bolt, clean routes or boulders, you want to monetize a little your efforts.

9b can help you in this aim.


As you can see here, in 9b there are many " topo groups ".


You can add a discussion in every "topo group".

In your discussion you can edit and publish your own climbing topoguide, as a "paywall", a "destination page", requiring climbers their payment by credit card or paypal to access and read, even on SMARTPHONES (iphones, android phones, ...)


After having paid, climbers can see, save and print your climbing topoguide.


In this discussion you can add:


1) PHOTOS regarding one specific SECTOR (of routes or bouldering, dws lines)


a) "PHOTO topo":

It's very easy to edit a photo topo:
