12/19/13 - Daniel Woods has made the first ascent of The Nest in Red Rock, Nevada, calling it V15. He described it as a "joint effort" with Jimmy Webb, who quickly followed up with the second ascent. "In the end... we stood on top of one of the raddest boulders I have seen," Woods said on his Instagram.

Webb agreed: "One of the most amazing lines you'll ever see." He spent five days working out the moves.

Earlier this week, Woods, Webb, and Nalle Hukkataival repeated The Shining Path (V12), a ca. 35-foot-tall Red Rock highball arete that Pete Lowe established in March 2011.

Date of ascents: December 18, 2013
