Big Worm (V14) Repeated Twice

Chris Schulte and Paul Robinson have done quick 2nd and 3rd ascents of Dave Graham’s recently opened V14 at Mt. Evans called Big Worm with Robinson suggesting it might be hard V13.  Picture of Robinson from Chuck Fryberger.  Pictures of Schulte.

    hee hee! thanks, but i certainly made no “quick” repeat of Big Worm.. I put about 6 days into it this year, about the same amount of time it took me to do Gecko Assis, my first v14, supposedly hard for the grade (?).. Big Worm has big (sloping) holds, but its about 22 moves long, and from 70 to 90 deg. overhanging! Paul is a monster, plain and simple, tho B.W. is prolly a different sort of 8b+ than any in font, and, tho it’s “my style” gave me a tough run. I’m no 5.14+ sport climber, tho…
    A few dudes have put down Ode to the Modern Man in a few tries, or 30 min, or a day… I watched Kevin Jorgensen almost FLASH it IN THE RAIN (!), falling off high on the problem.. Anybody got thoughts on this one? It KILLS me, personally..
    Diff’rent strokes for diff’rent folks…

      Hey Chris,

      Thanks for stopping by to share more about your ascent. I guess what I meant by quick was that you guys both sent shortly after the FA.

      As far as Ode is concerned, I’ve heard from a couple people that it might even be V13…
