Dave Graham has been keeping busy of late doing what else but looking for new boulders. His recent hunt has taken him to Colorado’s RMNP and more specifically to the Endo Valley area of the park. This is where, just yesterday, he did the FA of a potential V14 he’s calling Glow In The Dark Estrellas. Writing on his 8a scorecard Graham had this to say about the line:
WOW. sick new zone, sick new problem. Pure compression. I am not sure if it is 8b+ for everyone…if you are shorter, it may be impossible, yet if you are taller, it could become more 8b or 8a+ even? At 2 meters? That said, its certainly a morphological problem, but is certainly more difficult then the Big Worm in Mt. Evans, for my height. The crux move is at my full extension, and is followed by a terrible toe-hook match, which is extra cabron. SYKED.
And for reference here’s a picture of the boulder he posted to his twitter account:
