Notable Sends In Bishop & Hueco Tanks

A few tidbits of news on this Wednesday…

The young French superstar Enzo Oddo, who recently made news with his repeat of Ambrosia, finished his trip to Bishop in fine style.  According to his blog he repeated the highball This Side Of Paradise (V10) and did the 3rd ascent of Kevin Jorgeson’s highball The Beautiful And Damned (V13), the latter “king line” coming on the last day of his trip.

A bit to the east in Hueco Tanks, Jason Kehl opened a new 25-move roof problem at the southern tip of East Spur called The Seventh Circle. According to this report on Kehl had been working the line over the course of the past 3 seasons.  No grade has been suggested, but the line looks sick so who cares, right?

Congrats to Jason for sticking with it and getting it done.

Also in Hueco for the past couple of weeks has been Dave Graham who, according to his 8a scorecard, did the first repeat of Daniel Woods’ Crook By The Book (V14).

And since I haven’t found time to mention it anywhere else, Daniel Woods and Katja Vidmar won their respective Mutant divisions at the recent 2011 Hueco Rock Rodeo.  I have no idea what Woods’ score of 7630 means but I’m guessing he has a pretty good circuit of problems to do there…

Update: Here’s a video you can download of Woods’ day at the Rock Rodeo.  4 V13s in a day…not bad.

    At the Rodeo each problem was assigned points and there was a cumulative score of the top six problems.

    I watched Daniel climb Crown of Aragorn. It was totally inspiring and was a big highlight of the weekend. The Rodeo was great.

    Enzo Oddo… not only crushing hard numbers like the european kids, but willing to play the mental game too. How can you not pull for this kid?

    Speaking of Hueco, rumor has it that a certain Ian Dory may or may not have sent a certain V14 that may or may not be called Esperanza yesterday.

      That may or may not be impressive depending on whether or not this rumor can
      or cannot be confirmed
