Strong Day for Eric Venker in RMNP
  2008-08-15 00:00:00    
Last Saturday Eric Venker had his "best climbing day ever!" and sent the Automator 8B, Freaks of the Industry 8B/+, and the Centaur 8A+. This number of hard sends in one day is perhaps unprecedented in the Park. Eric has also recently done Mental Masturbation 8A+ at Mt. Evans and is ranked number 12 in the US. Congratulations Eric!

This is def. the best day in the Park.  James Litz, Tony Lamiche, Ty Landman, Jon Cardwell, Seth Allred and many others have been and never has there been such a day.

A bit different though because Woods had climbed all those problems before.

Yea, speaking of that video it would have been badass if someone had gotten video of that day. I would pay a couple dollars to see Freaks, Automator, Centaur and Bushpilot go down in a day.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but it seems that some doubt is being cast on the sends? I watched him send the automator and freaks. can't say the same for centaur or bushpilot, but i wouldn't call it a stretch.
