After making the first ascent of The Story of 2 Worlds, Graham graded the boulder 8C and called it “the new 8C standard” saying it was much harder than the Swiss problems New Base Line and Dreamtime which were given 8C then, but are considered to be easier nowadays.
However, for The Story of 2 Worlds the grade of 8C+ is buzzing around because, even after 5 years, it is still considered as one of the hardest problems in the world.
