Powered by beta and belay from Adam Ondra, Daniel Woods managed to flash Jonathan Siegrist's Pure imagination, 8c+, at the Chocolate factory, Red River Gorge, Kentucky.
Daniel agrees with Adam's suggested downgrade from 9a to 8c+, but this still makes him only the 4th person ever to onsight or flash this grade after Patxi Usobiaga, Adam Ondra and Ramon Julian Puigblanque.
Woods and Cédric Lachat have also made the third and fourth ascents of Adam Taylor's Southern smoke direct at Bob Marley, again agreeing 9a is more appropriate for this one than 9a+.
