8B+/V14 FA by Daniel Woods
Yesterday (29/1/12) Daniel Woods completed the first ascent of Mind to Motion (8B+) at Nicky's Boulders/Elkland, CO. According to his Facebook athlete page "the line goes out a 35 degree overhanging bulge. There are two near parallel rails leading to a flat hold at the 3/4 point. The style is wide compression moves between the two rails with involved heel hooking and edging. Once you arrive to the flat edge, you then set up for the giant iron cross move out right to a flat sidepull. From here the moves are not so hard, but you have a potential 25 foot fall onto rocks and logs and the rock quality becomes not so good. This just adds in an adrenaline packed topout."
