Daniel Woods has claimed the first ascent of another hard boulder problem in the Elkland sector of Rocky Mountain National Park, Colorado. On his 8a.nu scorecard, he writes about the new V14 problem called The Purge:
"Dave and I found this prow a while back and Dave gave it a try before departing to Europe. He told me it was really good, so I decided to pay it a visit and became obsessed over the movement. The full package line! Crux iron cross from left hand micro crimp to right hand slopey arête leads you into a desperate hand flip into a left hand undercling, followed by compression climbing, The topout is not easy either. I resorted to a night session to get better temps. One of my favorite lines."
