Daniel Wood with "Sleepwalker " 8C+ and "Squoze " 8B+ in one day.

It is probably worth an article of its own. Daniel Woods manages the boulder “Sleepwalker ” 8C+ and “Squoze ” 8B+, in one day. Admittedly, he tried both boulders for a longer time. But the former is considered the hardest boulder in the US at the moment. As reported, it was the 2nd ascent of Jimmy Webb Boulder. He confirmed Jimmy’s proposal. The Boulder “Sleepwalker ” in Black Velvet Canyon (Red Rocks) is just one of two boulders in this grade that was first ascented last year, see the list of the world’s hardest boulders. Jimmy graded the boulder “squoze ” with 8B+, Daniel looks in but rather in grade 8B+/C.

Daniel by instagram: “Jimmy proposed 8B+(v14) but hes too damn strong in this style… i dont suck at compression nor is it my forte, but felt it took a shit on all the v14 compression lines I have done. will leave it at 14/15 and others can confirm. Its in BV on the far left side of the Wet Dream bloc.. left hand pinch low on arete and right hand undercling to start (no shit start though) “
