Daniel Woods had an extraordinary high school break at Hueco Tanks, Texas, sending two V14s and two V13s, along with a host of easier problems, during a two-week visit. The 16-year-old repeated Slashface and Esperanza, both V14, within three days at the end of the year. He also climbed Nagual (V13) and made the second ascent of Flamingon (V13) in just one hour of work. Among the half a dozen or so V12 problems Woods did, he completed one new one: Three Headed Dragon.
