Matty Hong has made the 2nd ascent of Daniel Woods' White noise, ~8B+/C, at Wild Basin, Colorado.

According to Jamie Emerson who was there and caught the ascent on video, ...this long and strenuous problem, breaks down into a V14 [8B+] into a V10 [7C+].

Originally given 8C, Matty suggests it could be 8B+.
Actually, using Tim O'Neill's classic formula for long boulder problems, x=(y+z+4)/2, we get (V14+V10+4)/2=V14.
See, it's all about numbers ;)
