Karoshi-first ascent

Back in early 2018, my friend Keith Allen Peters and I headed over to the New Map of Hell boulder. We both quickly noticed that there was a line of holds that went directly out the steep overhang. We chalked them up and I quickly became obsessed with the line. Day after day, this was all I could think about!

Temperatures started to warm up and I knew I was going to have to wait until the next season to get on this project again.

Fast forward to December 2018... Katerina and I were on a plane from Denver to El Paso. I had one goal in my mind, climb the New Map project!

I spent a total of two weeks trying this thing more or less day on followed by a day off because of how sharp the boulder problem is. Thankfully by the end of the trip, I had the boulder problem pretty dialed in. It was just going to take that lucky try to get it done!

I hope you enjoy the video! Please subscribe if you are not already! More great things to come in 2019...

"Slashface" V13 and "Alma Blanca" V13 more to come...


Fred Nicole holte sich 2001 die Erstbegehung von "ESPERANZA" V14, eine der steilsten und schwersten
Linien in Hueco Tanks.

Daniel Woods versuchte sich am Sitzstart, der logischen Verlängerung zu "ESPERANZA".
Heraus kam die beeindruckende Linie "DESPERANZA" V15.
Bei der Bewertung war man sich allerdings nicht einig, diese wurde heiß diskutiert.

Daniel meinte, dass ihm "DESPERANZA" schwerer fiel als "TERREMER" V15
(Erstbegehung,Fred Nicole), im gleichen Schwierigkeitsgrad im gleichen Gebiet.
Andere wiederum sind der Auffassung, dass man diese 2 Boulderprobleme nicht vergleichen könnte, da sie
unterschiedliche Anforderungen haben und alleine die Tatsache, dass der Sitzstartboulder
sechs Züge im Grad V7 beinhaltet, reiche nicht aus, um diese Bewertung abzugeben.

Letztendlich werden wie immer die Wiederholer den Grad bestätigen oder korrigieren.
