Jimmy Webb has made the 2nd ascent of Daniel Woods' Fantasia, 8B+, at Matthew Winters Park just outside Denver, CO.
"Fantasia is truly an amazing boulder problem. It holds some of the neatest moves I've ever done on a roof. You're doing 360's, toe hooks, power moves, a spicy last move lunge to a 2 finger pocket, and a tricky lip encounter. It's basically just a full package boulder.
The rock is super gritty and for me the skin aspect was a big issue. On my first day trying it though I got really close, falling from the last move. Then after a day of rest Dave and I went back and I fell from the last move like 2 or 3 times before finally snagging the 2 finger pocket.
I feel super happy to have completed it.. and now with about 6 days left on my trip I can focus my time on other hard amazing boulders on the Front Range!
