Paul Robinson has made the 3rd ascent of Daniel Woods' Mirror Reality, 8B+, in the Rocky Mountain National Park, CO.
Daniel made the first ascent in the beginning of January this year after having been shown the project by Dave Graham.
Paul comments on his 27crags tick list, that he had to dig deep to do this one:
...a mental battle for me! after falling off that jump move so many times it was hard to stick with it!
According to the same website, this mental battle lasted 5 days.
Now Paul can move on and concentrate fully on another Woods-problem, the unrepeated Paint it black, 8C. Apparently, this one is safer to do while there's still snow as the landing is somewhat terrible otherwise...
