Jaws II (5.15a) Repeated By Daniel Woods

According to Maxim Zolotukhin’s twitter feed Daniel Woods pulled off the 2nd ascent of Jaws II (5.15a) in Rumney, NH today.  First done as Jaws (5.14b) by Dave Graham many years ago the route subsequently broke several times resulting in a much harder line that had only been done previously by Vasya Vorotnikov 3 years go.  Basically the route boils down to a short V12 and a 1 move V10 separated by some “easier” climbing.

Writing on his 8a scorecard Woods says in reference to confirming a grade of 5.15a for the route that, “At first I thought 9a (5.14d) but after falling off the 2nd crux twice and having to fight in good conditions, I thought this could be harder.”

    I guess the big question is, Does he confirm the grade?

    Does anyone else remember the old ads that used to run with the sequence of shots showing Dave Graham sticking the crux of this route back in the day?? That’s always been one of my favorite sets of pictures.

      Weren’t those sterling rope ads. I know exactly what you are talking about. The movement on the route is dynamic and violent. Gotta love Rumney!

        Yeah I knew it was a rope ad just couldn’t remember the company. Maybe they should just re-run that ad now??

    Wow, nice to see some ratings confirmed out there! Equally nice to see a CONFIRMED .15 in the states.

    The movie Sick: Climbing in New England by Taylor de Lench has some footage of Daniel trying this route in ’09. Shows the tough crux.
