Norway’s Hanshelleren cave contains the densest concentration of hard sport climbs in the world. It’s not where you would expect to find two of America’s strongest boulderers. In 2015 Daniel Woods and David Graham traded their pads for GRIGRIs, packed their ropes, and crossed the Atlantic in search of forearm pumps, kneebars, and Thor’s own hammer.
They will test themselves against many of Adam Ondra’s testpieces. After battling wet conditions, both Woods and Graham send Thor’s Hammer (9a+). While Woods works Thor’s Hammer, Graham makes an ascent of The Illusionist (8c), an unrepeated line bolted by Magnus Midtbø and first redpointed by Ondra.
