Daniel Woods Talks About The Process

Daniel Woods, writing about his recent FA of The Process in Bishop, CA which he believes is V16:

To grade something like this is hard. Media loves big numbers and to see a progression with numbers. This line means so much more to me than just a number. I know and lived the mental/physical struggle this beast presented me and it is the hardest obstacle I have dealt with in my life thus far. The Process does not contain the hardest set of moves that I have ever done, but the full package really packs a punch. Linking v13 to v14 to v10 with scare factor involved is not easy.

Fear Of Falling

One story that re-emerged during the big Dawn Wall push was this incredible story from 2000 when a young Tommy Caldwell, along with Beth Rodden, John Dickey and Jason Smith, was abducted by rebels in Kyrgyzstan:

“What the hell was that?” he shouts, donning his helmet instinctively, assuming the rifle crack is the clatter of rockfall.

“We’re being shot at, Singer!” Beth Rodden calls out in alarm from the other portaledge.

“That’s irrational,” Smith replies. “It’s probably local hunters.”

Then the third bullet hits right between the two platforms. Rock chips fly out of the crater, spraying the climbers.

“That was definitely for us!” Rodden shouts.

“It’s Really A Lifestyle”

T0mmy Caldwell, being interviewed by the New York Time minutes after topping out the Dawn Wall:

I would love for this to open people’s minds to what an amazing sport this is. I think the larger audience’s conception is that we’re thrill seekers, out there for an adrenaline rush. We really aren’t at all. It’s about spending our lives in these beautiful places and forming these incredible bonds with friends and family. It’s really a lifestyle. It’s superhealthy, and the climbing world is some of the most psyched, great people around. And if that love can spread, that’s really a great thing.
