Watch Daniel Woods working what very well may be the hardest boulder problem in the country if not the world! If Daniel's estimation is correct, this is the first V16 in the country and arguably the universe!!! Produced for The North Face neverstopexploring.com I shot and edited this piece in collaboration with Big Up Productions bigupproductions.com and Sender Films senderfilms.com The Full Send will be featured in this years Reel Rock Tour reelrocktour.com See my other work at verticalcarnival.blogspot.com The back story....I first met Daniel Woods about 5 years ago while in Rocklands Africa. Daniel already had a reputation as a steel fingered bouldering phenomena, and watching him crush in the boulders was about as close as I've come to witnessing the defiance of gravity. When Daniel mentioned on a facebook post that he had a new super project up in Bolder Canyon, and felt he might be close to the hardest moves I've ever tried, I figured it might be a cool moment to film and so I rang him up! For the last two weeks I have been braving the 30 degree temps and shooting Daniel's process and progress. Today in spite of a broken hold and a nasty fall, Daniel sucked it up, figured out new beta and SENT!!! This is definitely harder than Terremer, and Jade, and I think warrants the grade of V16 he said. If Daniel's estimation is right, this puts The Game as a competitor for hardest boulder in the world!!! Daniel had this to say, I called this problem The Game, because for me the climb was a game I had to play, I had to click into game mode, and really train myself for these moves. I had to grow mentally strong and also physically strong to be able to put it together. I call it the game, because I played the game and I ended up winning the game so game over. A little inside information... one of Daniel's favorite rappers is also named The Game!

maybe the most amazing roof-climb in the Zillertal?

Corona und zuviel Schnee, eine Kombination, in der man viel... zu viel Zeit hat. Ich habe mein Video Archiv durchforstet und zwei schöne Erstbegehungen von 2013 gefunden.

long time ago, when I was young, good looking & strong... ??
two nice first ascents in my second home valley.

Sorry for the bad video quality. The recordings were made with our old camera.

This beautiful line was one of the first boulders in Tyrol that I immediately fell in love with and absolutely wanted to climb. Unfortunately, the boulder is located in an area where the approach is controversial and I haven't been there for a very long time.

This year, 2020, I followed my friend Enrico's invitation to try.
I checked out the moves on the first day and I felt two times at the top. What a shame. The next day I managed to climb it in the third attempt. Just awesome.
Unfortunately, they started building a hydropower station there and I'm curious to see what it looks like after the Corona lockdown.
I hope that Tumpen as a bouldering area will be preserved with its beautiful bouldering and that there will still be many people enjoying the compact rock there.
Namaste
