Video: Daniel Woods climbs Chinese Arithmetic V13

As i'm sitting around the house trying to stay motivated, patiently waiting for the up & coming season, I always find myself checkin out sick videos from the past. Tonight i've stumbled back upon a very cool video made by Spencer Victory of Daniel Woods climbing two rarely repeated Litz lines at the Obed in Tennessee. Most impressive of the two being the 2nd ascent of Chinese Arithmetic V13. I've grown up climbing around the South and this line is by far the hardest established boulder i've seen. Can't wait for the season to kick in, and my journeys take me back to the place i started climbing to try my luck on this one.

Check it!

Back in the Nooga/ Colorado Vid

Well, the CO trip is over, and i'm back in Chattanooga chillin in the heat. Just finished my first TBA "get back in shape" session, and it was humbling to say the least... Psyched on whats to come though! I see lots of route climbing in my future, training for Hueco in early January, and the incredible FONT in february!!!

Got some ideas to shoot another "Summer Sessions" video of some southern bouldering/ sport climbing so keep an eye out for that. Until then, here's a quick clip i through together of some bouldering in Colorado.

Quick Vid from Cam

The other day Dave, Daniel, Hugh and I we're just perusing through the Talus field between Upper Chaos and Super Chaos and ran across a pretty neat little diamond shaped roof. We cleaned er up a little bit, tried some moves, and figured out a powerful method that made the boulder a bit easier than we originally suspected. I was able to snag the FA calling it Whoopie V9, and Daniel followed quickly after. Check out the cool vid Cam so graciously edited!
