<p>“Last night was just another one of those nights,” posted Woods on Instagram. “Felt nervous yet at peace with this bloc and was able to climb the line.”</p>
<p>The problem is now dubbed<em><span> The Process</span></em> and is rumored to be a possible V16. Located to the right of Paul Robinson’s<em> Lucid Dreaming </em>(V15)    on the Grandpa Peabody boulder, the mega-line is not only hard but also extremely tall. For perspective, the famous Jason Kehl highball <em>Evilution</em>    (V11) lies to the left of <em>The Process</em>.</p>
<p>Adding to difficulty was the fact that Woods had to climb the headwall at night.</p>
<p>“Since the line bakes in the sun all day, we resorted to night sessions,” wrote Woods. “This def spiced things up and required a team of motivated friends    to help this method come to life. Lanterns, God beams, headlamps etc. made the Boulder glow beneath the stars.”</p>
<p>Woods credited Daniel Beall for having the vision that <em>The Process</em> was possible. </p>
<p>“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.”</p>
<p>According to Woods, Beall is also close to sending <em>The Process</em>. </p>
<p>Stay tuned for an interview with Woods on what it took to climb this next-level boulder problem.</p>

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
