A few days ago, Daniel Woods only managed to repeat the second 8c + boulder in Switzerland for the second time: Off the Wagon sit in Val Bavona, Ticino.

The young American opened a year ago Shawn Raboutou the first 8c + boulder in Switzerland. Since then, the line has been designed by numerous greats of the climbing scene. So far, only two people have been successful: Jimmy Webb and now Daniel Woods.

“One of the most exciting experiences I've ever had while bouldering. Power, precision and accuracy must be perfectly orchestrated for an inspection. I was pretty much at the limit during the ascent, but I managed to pull myself together and got out of the boulder. In my opinion, the line is definitely one of the best three in the world. "
