Jimmy Webb has made the 3rd ascent of Daniel Woods' The Creature from the Black lagoon, ~8C+, at the Upper Chaos Canyon, Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado.

On his ascent, Jimmy said: 'Yesssss!! One of my main goals of the trip is complete with the 3rd ascent of the ultra sick Daniel Woods test piece 'Creature from the black lagoon' V16. After 6 days of work gaining the necessary power, power endurance, and alpine fitness I was finally able to take it down. Feels so damn good to climb such a stunner!!'

Daniel made the First Ascent in late September last year and Dave Graham nabbed the second ascent a month later.
