The weather is still too warm in Ticino and Varazze for Daniel Woods to make any serious attempts on his top two fall projects, The story of two worlds and Gioia, but this doesn't stop him from doing first ascents of difficult projects.
Courtney Sanders tells us, the latest problem to fall was the sit down start to the classic Muttertag, ~8A, at Magic wood. Many have looked at it, some have tried, but no one has succeeded until now. Daniel calls the new problem Mystic Stylez.
He is comparing it to the difficulty of Warrior Up, 8C in Lincoln Lake. It is difficult to grade because it is only a few moves, but the break down is a 2 move 8B into a one move 8A. For now it is going to stand at 8C.
