Daniel Woods resolves his Box Therapy 8C+ in Rocky Mountains

di

American climber Daniel Woods has made the first ascent of Box Therapy, an 8C+ boulder problem in the Rocky Mountain National Park, USA.

Making the most of what must certainly have been the last day of good conditions prior to the onset of winter, American boulderer Daniel Woods managed to make the first ascent his project at Box Lake in the Rocky Mountain National Park, USA.

The 18-move problem takes a rightwards trending line though a 50° roof, past "micro holds that make your pulleys feel like they are gonna pop after every attempt." Woods waited for a 1 week snowstorm to end, then cleaned snow and ice off the bloc prior to success. Graded 8C+, Box Therapy checks in as one of the most difficult problems in the world.
