Watch Daniel Woods ship Return of the Sleepwalker, 9A boulder at Purple Rocks


The video of Daniel Woods making the first ascent of Return of the Sleepwalker at Red Rocks, USA and currently only the second boulder problem in the world graded 9A.

Two months after Daniel Woods established Return of the Sleepwalker at Red Rocks, USA, here’s the video documenting the entire process that led the American to climb one of the most difficult problems in the world.

Return of the Sleepwalker adds a 7-move sitstart to Sleepwalker, an 8C+ put up by Jimmy Webb in January 2019, and for the elusive 17-move bloc Woods suggested 9A. On par therefore only with Burden of Dreams in Finland, freed in 2016 by Nalle Hukkataival. Both problems are currently awaiting a first repeat and, consequently, grade confirmation.
