A China bound Dave Graham has made the first ascent of The ice knife, ~8C, in Colorado's Guanella pass, another high altitude area south of the Rocky Mountain National Park and Boulder.
On his 8ascorecard Dave writes;A majestic prow, jutting out of the forest on a northeast facing slope. A very technical compression climb and extra conditiony. Took me eleven days over two seasons, and it was a huge relief to final climb it. Difficult to grade, but one of the more challenging problems I have tried in a very long time, so we will see.
In total, Dave has done around six 8C, give or take, almost all of which have been first ascents.
