Daniel Woods kann sich nach der erfolgreichen Begehung von „Off the Wagon sit“ nun über die 4. Begehung von „Primitivo“ (8C) im schweizerischen Valle Bavona freuen. Der Boulder aus dem letzten Jahr wurde von Jimmy Webb erstbegangen. Für Daniel war es die sensationelle 27. Begehung eines Boulders im Grad 8C oder schwerer.

„Had a crazy day out in the blocs. Day started with going to Brione and climbing a new classic that @jwebxl put up called „Versace“ (8B). After this we drove an hour to Bavona so I could have a shot at finishing another @jwebxl test piece called „Primitivo.“ The forecast called for rain starting in the eve and going through the night. We setup the lights and pads, played some rage against the machine (guerrilla radio), and I fired the line first try. It began to start pissin rain as I topped out, so Id say that the timing was perfect. Sucha stunner to session on! PRIMITIVO… the best wine.“
