Daniel Woods bouldering Return of the Sleepwalker (9a / V17) - video

A few weeks ago Daniel Woods managed the first ascent of the Boulder Return of the Sleepwalker. As a rating, he suggested 9a. Here is the video of the inspection.

The Boulder Return of the Sleepwalker (ROTSW) was drifting Daniel Woods almost insane. Never before has he planned the same boulder for such a long time. Never before has such a difficult line bouldered.

The Return of the Sleepwalker it is the seated start version of the 8c + Boulder Sleepwalker in the Red Rocks, UNITED STATES. The sitting start consists of 7 moves, which are already rated 8b - and only then does the 8c + Boulder Sleepwalker start. Inconceivably.
