NUMBERS

7 January 2013

Daniel Woods has done the the third ascent of Chris Sharma's classic Witness the Fitness, 8C in Arkansas. Fred Nicole did the second ascent in 2006 despite several broken holds and since than more holds have broken."In its original state, I would guess it would be hard 8B, when Fred did it 8B+, and now it is 8C." Sharma said some years ago that it was the hardest and by far the coolest line he has seen in his life. Also Jimmy Webb and Paul Robinson came close to sending it and Paul reports. "It was amazing to watch. In it's current state it is 8A+ to 8B to a 7B+ finish. The day before Paul had done the first repeat of Dave Graham's Wood grain grippin' also after broken hold that made it to go from soft to hard 8B+.
