Daniel Woods goes straight into battle mode with one of his hardest projects to date. Jimmy Webb established "Sleepwalker" (the stand start) back in January of 2019. The possibility of a sit-start arose in 2021. This sit-start would add in a 7 move 8B/v13 into "Sleepwalker" (8C+/v16). Grades can be fickle, but ROTSW stands as one of the hardest boulder problems in the world. Bobby Sorich did an awesome job capturing Daniel's process, emotion, and overall journey to climb ROTSW.
Hope you enjoy the film and are inspired to go out and mind fuck yourself a bit. Climbing is an awesome outlet to see how far you can go within, learn about yourself, and pull some freak shit out of you. All to accomplish a feat of strength that will give you 30 seconds of bliss, but a huge confidence boost within that's carried throughout your life. It's all a game out there... have fun playing the game. DW
Daniel made a pit stop in Joe's Valley on his way back from Vegas and dispatched "Pegasus" in a few tries (did try the line for a day in Nov. of last year). This power endurance crimp line was put up by Drew Ruana and is a low start to Anthony Chertudi's Pagan Poetry (v12/8A+). The sit probably adds a 4 move 13 into the stand. The crux of this is in the 2nd move. The hold you have to lock off and move off of is complete shit.
