Carlo Traversi has made the 2nd ascent of Daniel Woods' The Game at Boulder canyon, CO. The FA was made a little more than a year ago after many sessions. I think Daniel spent 17 days or so on it.
As these things go, Carlo's repeat went considerably quicker, most likely because he could benefit from all the hard work that had already been done and didn't have to figure out the beta himself. On his blog, Carlo describes the difference in beta in detail, but adds that All in all, our beta was very, very similar. Only minor tweaks to fit my style better.He continues "The Game is by far the hardest thing that I've ever climbed. Huge props to Daniel for having the vision for the first ascent. Trust me, I can't say enough good things about that kid. Always positive, always nice, and by far the strongest human on rock. Thanks for making The Game a reality for the rest of us Daniel!
