Sanuk climber Daniel Woods flashing Pure Imagination (14c) in the Red River Gorge, KY.
Via the manhimself:
I became the first American to flash 14c and the 4th person in the world (others include Adam Ondra, Patxi Usobiaga, and Ramonet Julien) to flash this grade. The climb is 90 feet tall and 40 degrees overhanging. Pure Imagination is broken down into 4 boulder problems separated by rests. The majority of the holds are quarter pad razor blades, which means your finger tips become quickly destroyed. You have to go into robotic mode and precisely grab each hold perfectly to get the job done. Pure Imagination is very attractive, projecting a glistening gold aura. It stands out from the other lines, making it the king line of the cliff. I was very happy to fight my way to the top and clip the chains. I feel privileged to climb these world class lines. Onto the next objective :)!
Congrats to Daniel on the killer climb!
