Pro climber Daniel Woods is considered one of the most important climbers in the history of bouldering. He has climbed over thirty boulders graded 8C (V15) or harder, making him one of the most prolific climbers of hard boulder problems. He has also won several competitions, such as the U.S. National Bouldering Championship and some international competitions.
In March 2021, Woods achieved the first ascent of a low start to Sleepwalker V16 (8C+). He named the problem Return of the Sleepwalker and proposed the grade 9A (V17), making him one of only two boulderers at the time to have climbed that grade. Daniel will join the Competition Climbing panel sharing knowledge from his athlete experience with the audience.
