On the last day of his stay in Ticino, Ryuichi Murai gets a quick tour of the Fred Nicole Boulder Dreamtime in Cresciano.

His trip to Switzerland was plagued by the bad weather. Heavy and persistent rains demanded his patience. Shortly after the weather got better, announced Ryuichi then the first successful ascents (LACRUX reported). He cracked Off the Wagon (8b +) in still suboptimal conditions and laid with the 8c boulder The Story of Two Worlds one on it.

On the last day of his trip, he climbed into the von Fred Nicole first-time boulder Dreamtime (8c) and stood on the block at the end of the day. In such a short time, in one day, the line, as far as we know, has never climbed.
