On Tuesday Paul Robinson nabbed a repeat of Daniel Woods’ RMNP V14 Mirror Reailty. He then put in some more work on another hard boulder of Woods’ in The Park, the unrepeated Paint It Black (V15). Deterred by a lack of pads for the high finish[1. When Woods did the FA there was still a significant amount of snow underneath the boulder][2. No doubt not wanting a repeat of this], he vowed to return the next day.
Wednesday was a new day, and in short order Robinson topped out Paint It Black for the problem’s second ascent. Here’s what he had to say about the send in an update on his blog:
I had climbed one of the best boulders in the country and i was super psyched to have spent two amazing days in the park climbing on amazing rock in pristine wilderness.
Not content, Robinson moved down Bear Lake Rd. to have a go at Hypnotized Minds (V15), the last hard, unrepeated boulder in RMNP. He didn’t send…at least not yet.
