Jimmy Webb has made the first ascent of Delirium, ~8C, at Mount Evans, Colorado.
Delirium starts like The Wheel of Wolvo, the 8C Jimmy put up last week, but exits more direct via Dismantling the enemy, a hard and powerful 8A+.
This harder exit makes the whole thing slightly more difficult than the original, but still ~8C according to Jimmy.
Daniel Woods also managed to grab the 2nd ascent of Wheel of Wolvo the other day.
Next week, Jimmy is planning to try to exit via We can build you, an 8B+ in its own right. i wouldn't be surprised if this turns out to be even harder so fingers crossed.James Webb is sponsored by: prAna, Sterling Rope, Tennessee Bouldering Authority, Five Ten, Organic and Metolius.
