Chris Webb Parsons is in Hueco Tanks, Texas, with a strong crew, including both Alex Puccio and Shauna Coxsey. Now he has made the 2nd ascent of Daniel Woods' Desperanza, 8C.
Desperanza, which is the sit down start to Fred Nicole's Esperanza in the Dirty Martini Cave, is what Chris calls his "training boulder" while in Hueco, as it's "good power endurance training".
Well... if he runs a couple of laps on it every day, who knows, maybe he will climb something hard one of this days, eh?
