Jaws 2 by Woods

Daniel Woods has brought his bouldering skills to the routes. After, the Nor'easter Fest, he stayed on the east coast and headed to Rumney to try Vasya Vorotnikov's Jaws 2, aka "broken jaws", on the Waimea wall.

The conditions weren't great but Daniel still made good progress, and a few days ago he told me he felt it was most likely 9a or so. Basically two hard boulder sections, which aren't too bad if you're in good bouldering form.

As it turned out, he reconsidered this opinion after falling a couple of times on the 2nd, easier crux, even though the conditions were fine, before completing the route.

The route is basically a short ~8A+/B boulder into a 7c/7A section into a reachy/lurpy ~7C+/8A followed by relatively easy terrain. According to Vorotnikov and Woods this adds up to ~9a+.

I am confused, does this mean he's actually done it or not ? If yes, then well done Mr Woods If no, then why is this news ? and can I add that I have also failed to complete the John Gaskins Brandenburg Gate project at Raven Tor which should weigh in at about 9b imho. I can supply pictures on request.

Not very clear from the report but yes, he has done it.

Which part of this are you having trouble with..... "As it turned out, he reconsidered this opinion after falling a couple of times on the 2nd, easier crux, even though the conditions were fine, before completing the route."

Tend to agree, the word 'completing' gave that away...

I think the report's been updated. I thought the same when i first read it. Effort
