Red Rocks, Nevada, has seen a lot of action this season, with numerous ascents of Meadowlark Lemon, ~8B+, as well as several top end first ascents.
The hardest first ascent of the season, and also the most difficult boulder problem in the area, was The Nest in First Creek Canyon. The boulder was discovered by Andy Raether and Kenny Barker, who showed it to Daniel Woods and Jimmy Webb. The rest is history.
Shortly after Daniel's and Jimmy's back to back ascents, Paul Robinson managed to make the third ascent. So far, The Nest has had three ascents, all using different beta for the crux.
