Daniel Woods Sends The Process – Possible V16Over the weekend, Daniel Woods climbed one of the great undone projects in the Buttermilks of Bishop, California.
Last night was just another one of those nights. Felt nervous yet at peace with this bloc and was able to climb the line. @daniel_beall and I both submerged ourselves into “The Process.” Since the line bakes in the sun all day, we resorted to night sessions. This def spiced things up and required a team of motivated friends to help this method come to life. Laterns, God beams, headlamps etc made the Boulder glow beneath the stars. It was an uneasy yet surreal feeling to climb the upper headwall in the darkness with only a headlamp to light the path. huge respect goes to @daniel_beall for realizing that this line is possible, cleaning it, and being cool with sharing it with the rest of the climbing community. He is close to sending it. respect! now onto the next challenge @krimdogbillionaire with the photo of the actual send. @thenorthface @sanukfootwear @lasportivana @petzl_official @organicclimbing @giddyorganics @gognarly
