First Creek Canyon, outside of Red Rocks, NV, was recently discovered by locals Andy Raether and Kenny Barker to have a lot of quality sandstone boulders. It is also home to one of America’s best hard boulder routes, a shouldery, V15 monster called ‘The Nest’.
Daniel Woods and Jimmy Webb paid a visit this winter looking for monsters to slay and were not disappointed. Watch how both of them worked and eventually got the first and second ascents of the problem using their own unique styles.
