DWoods_V16

In case you haven't heard, La Sportiva athlete, Daniel Woods is crushing. Everything.  Including his long standing project in Boulder Canyon.  Dubbing it "The Game" V16! 
After 17 days of effort spread over 2 years, Daniel confirmed that this line is a step above all other rigs.

Daniel has been quite busy lately, after returning to Colorado from a lengthy stint in Europe and Northern Cali, he hooked up the 3rd ascent of Terremer V15, established The Game V16, and just won The ABS Bouldering Nationals....
It's a DWoods take over fo sho!

For more info on all of Daniel's action checkout:

Northern Colorado is stacking up the test-pieces. We are sure to see an insurgency of Euros and American crankers alike making their may to NoCo to get it in on the hot XXX bouldering action.

FIRST ASCENT: The Godzilla Indirect Sit Start, V12 _ Blake Rutherford

NEWS FLASH!  Mega FoCo Local, Blake Rutherford, has established what is arguably the hardest line in the Fort Collins area with his first ascent of "The Godzilla Indirect Sit Start" @ Arthur's Rock.  Blake spent approximately 20 days on the line that starts between the classics 4 Dollar Arete, V10 and Godzilla, V8 traversing up and right eventually finishing on the top jugs of Godzilla.  With crimps, pinches, non-existent looking holds, and one massive shoulder move this RIG is stacked from beginning to end.  In my opinion Godzilla Indirect features some of the best pure power movement at Arthur's... Thanks for the new line Blake!
