Daniel Woods and Jimmy Webb have made the first and second ascents of The Nest, ~8C, at Red Rocks. Nevada.

Felt like a 10 move 8A into a very low percentage 3 move 8B. Felt lucky to send it and I feel very fortunate that incredible lines like this actually exist.
Apparently they both succeeded on their last try, but somehow I don't think this is very rare...
