Today Daniel Woods sent Dai Koyomada’s test piece Hydrangea V15 in Shiobara, Japan. Last year Daniel made his first visit to Japan to compete in the North Face Cup. One goal while here on that trip was to send Hydra v13 and Hydrangea V15. After 8 strong attempts on Hydrangea Daniel left only sending Hydra.
For the 2013 North Face Cup Daniel returned to defend his title and settle his unfinished business in Shiobara. Needless to say Daniel won TNFC last week and sent Hydrangea on his last try of the his second day in the area. Daniel said “It is for real V15, but on the harder side. Definitely one of the hardest problems I’ve ever sent.”
Congratulations Daniel on grabbing the second ascent of this long problem. It was truly motivating to watch. Look for video in Reel Rock 8.
