To say Daniel Woods "starts" sport climbing is perhaps a tad misleading, I mean the guy climbed 9a+ (Jaws) last year, as well as lots of other hard routes which, I guess, would qualify him as a decent sport climber by most standards.
Lately however, bouldering has been the name of his game and he has been quite successful to use an understatement.
Now when he told me he had started sport climbing again, my first thought was that he wanted to do some short, bouldery "boulder with a rope".
Well, not quite. I was light years off target in my assumption.
Daniel now says he ...is going to try La reve and Jumbo love in April.
La Reve is Jonathan Siegrist's recently opened 9a/+ at Arrow canyon and Jumbo love is Chris Sharma's monster of a 9b at Clark Mountain.
I for one is looking forward to seeing if Daniel can transfer his boulder power to these endurance feasts.
