Paint it Black 8C by Daniel Fong

Fanny Dong, who did three 8B+' last year, has done his first 8C, Paint it Black in RMNP in just four sessions. It is a 65 degree overhanging roof that Daniel Woods has put up.

"Really cool to get on a hard climb that is also high quality. 4 sessions, first two were basically figuring out the second move aka my crux. Had a ton of support from the homies and tried hard, psyched to get it done before the heat comes. Out of my depth in this grade range so I’m going with consensus."

No disrespect, but is Fanny Dong a nickname? His occupation is Wanker afterall. Must be all that gripping....

I believe that would be Daniel Fong, or Danny Fong.

Would seem as if Fanny Dong is, a late bloomer, being 35 years old and this year climbing his first v10, v11, v12, v13, v14 and v15. Interestingly he works a full time job, which begs the question, is Paint it Black a boulder problem or a boulder like No Kpote Only?

Daniel did his first 8A in 2012 and then there has been a steady progress.According his scorecard he is 27 years old.

While he is only 27 years old, and possibly not a late bloomer by this standard, he does weigh in at 192 pounds.
