Published about 3 years ago by Sakari McGregor.

Daniel Woods had a quick trip to Japan this week to attend the TNF cup which he also won. He also managed to have some time and climb outside.

Mr. Woods managed to tick off Cartharsis an 8B+ in the Shiobara area of Utsunomiya. He comments the climb on his ticklist as "Amazing roof climb, my style of climbing. Direct horizontal power climbing on pockets"!
