Paul Robinson has made the 2nd ascent of Daniel Woods' Paint it black, 8C, in the Rocky Mountain National Park, CO.
At the conclusion of Paul's session yesterday he felt strong on Paint it Black and ready to give it a send go. With cold and windy temperatures today (April 18), he returned to Daniel Wood's Paint it Black and sent it third try, nabbing the second ascent of the line.
The day before, Paul got close but didn't want to risk a bad fall due to a lack of crash pads. This time, it would seem he either dug deeper or had more pads.
