Jimmy Webb 7th to Send Jade

Video by John Gass - A sending spree on Rocky Mountain National Park's Jade might be in order. Jimmy Webb grabbed the seventh ascent of the Daniel Woods problem on June 8, just weeks after Carlo Traversi climbed its notoriously crimpy sequence. "The weather was basically awful, and I still had two small split tips," blogged Webb. "On my first attempt, though, I surprised myself by sticking the crux move." He then climbed it his second go of the day, even though he "pulled on feeling worse than ever." After his May 27 send, Traversi downgraded Jade to V14 due to his admitted weakness on crimps, and Webb confirmed the downgrade. See Webb's blog for more.
