Nalle Hukkataival has repeated Daniel Woods' The Nest, ~8C, at First Creek, Red Rocks, Nevada.

I think this is the fourth ascent after Woods, Webb and Robinson.
Nalle was there with Woods and Webb when the first and second ascents were made approximately one year ago, but due to a shoulder injury he had at the time, he couldn't do himself justice.

Just took down The Nest (V15)! Last year Andy Raether and Kenny Barker took us to this gem and we brushed it up with Daniel Woods and Jimmy Webb but I was unable to try it with my shoulder injury. It's one of the best feelings coming back stronger and climbing something that you couldn't do because of an injury! I felt lucky to top it out today with the extra-humid conditions that forced me to eventually change my beta.
Good times in Red Rocks!! Time for the projects!!
