Daniel Woods and Jimmy Webb have made the first and second ascents of The Nest, ~8C, at Red Rocks. Nevada.
For Jimmy this was his third 8C, while for Daniel it was his... umpteenth, or there about.
It's just one of the best. On the all time list for sure. Up there with the worlds greatest. When you think of lines like dreamtime, ninja skills, or any popular classic this thing is simply just as good. Perfect rock and amazing movement. Felt like a 10 move 8A into a very low percentage 3 move 8B. Felt lucky to send it and I feel very fortunate that incredible lines like this actually exist.
Apparently they both succeeded on their last try, but somehow I don't think this is very rare...
