8C+ soft. 15 days. Watch the ascent on "Uncharted Lines".
As for how hard this thing is? That is a question that will obviously be thrown around, accepted or bashed," Woods wrote. "I believe this line is harder than most [V]15s I've done so why not call it [V]16. If train is ran on it and consensus calls it 15, then that is all good.

This climb suits me, but still pushed me farther than anything I have ever done that is graded 8C. Time will tell, but 8C+ seems completely logical.

Is twenty year old Shawn Raboutou the next Daniel Woods? With Raboutou’s recent repeat of Woods’ infamous Creature From The Black Lagoon (8C+/ V16), the comparison between the two world class climbers, a generation apart, has only strengthened. Fresh off his sending spree in Rocklands, South Africa, where Raboutou ticked classics like The Finnish Line (8C/V15), Mirta (8B+/ V14), and made a first ascent of a new classic Book Club (8B+/V14), Raboutou seems to be in great form.
Well the process was pretty fun and what made the difference in the end was the conditions. It was my 4th day on it this year and I had tried it twice 2 years ago. Also I want to mention that I'm not sure about the 8C+ grade and think it could be 8C. I don't feel that I have enough experience though to make better judgement then the people who have done it before me.
