Sam Weir Sends Third V15 with The Nest

The top boulderer adds to his growing list o V15 sends

Sam Weir has climbed his third V15 with a send of The Nest in Red Rocks. The hard problem had been climbed by top climbers including Daniel Woods, Jimmy Webb, Paul Robinson, Nalle Hukkataival, Facundo Langbehn, Takahashi Tani and Ethan Pringle.

“Best boulder I have ever climbed on,” Weir said. “Nice V10/11 intro into a one move V12 to a finsh V8 for me. I ended up using daniels beta which uses a 1/4 pad crimp and a one arm pull up. I was not sure this was going to go with all the bad weather but I got one lucky day and it went all nice and chill.

“Thanks John Sara and Pablo for all the psyche and hiking up to wet and un-climabable condition. Upper end V15 I believe. The bar. Kinda of like Hypno where it is easy to get close to sending this but its nails to actually send.” Weir has climbed other V15s in the past including Topaz and Ice Knife
