A few recent and notable accomplishments,
Woods: “The roof proj. Sick power line revolving around 3 moves. The first non hold i have grabbed. took 3 days of hard sessioning. I think hardest in area so far. More projects just keep coming. Psyched! ”
Graham: “the amazing roof project. very powerful, yet still very technical. The first move is big trouble, it took four days of work just to do it once, and then it never really got any easier! Definitely the hardest up in the area, and the first boulder I have done if this level in some time now. Seems certainly 8c, but we will see right…5 days of work, 2nd ascent. SYKED FOR THE NEW SHIT!!!!.”
