Daniel Woods is now back in the US after extensive traveling. Lately he has made the 2nd ascent of B J Tilden's Moonshine, 9a, at Wild Iris, Wyoming, and made the first ascent of White noise, 8C, in Wild Basin, Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado.

Moonshine is, according to Courtney Sanders who was there with Daniel, a short bouldery power endurance line which contains monos, dishes, and small pockets., and Daniel could make the 2nd ascent on his second day of trying it, after finding new, for him, crucial beta.

White noise which used to be known as The White Boulder project is, according to Jamie Emerson a classic line of traversing flat holds up a monstrous boulder. A power endurance test piece for the the new generation.

Not a bad week for Mr Woods!
