Daniel Woods Keeps the Send Train Going on The Finnish Line (V15)
Daniel Woods added one more V15 to his record list of problems at the grade at the end of June. After working it for three days on a rope, and then another three without, Woods sent The Finnish Line, Nalle Hukkataival’s eight-meter-tall testpiece in Rocklands, South Africa. Shawn Raboutou made the fourth ascent of the problem only a week before Woods. In an email to Rock and Ice, Woods wrote, “I’d say this thing is pretty solid for 8C [V15]. Shawn, [Alex] Megos and I used a different hand sequence for the top half of the bloc that was easier to Nalle’s. It is def one of the harder blocs in Rocklands next to Livin Large. Besides the difficulty, the line and moves are a true experience.”
