Jimmy Webb, Daniel Woods and Keenan Takahashi battled against one of the hardest undone projects in the U.S. in December.
On Dec. 15, 2018, after 11 days of effort, Webb completed the first ascent of Sleepwalker suggesting a grade of V16.
Then on Jan. 22, Woods announced that he’d made the second ascent and confirmed the grade. “Nalle dubbed it the Dry Nightmare proj and it proved to offer some of the harder individual moves I have tried,” said Woods before the first ascent.

Sleepwalker v16 (8C+) 2nd asc. a few weeks ago @jwebxl hit me up to come check out this proj first tried by @nalle_hukkataival in Black Velvet canyon. Nalle dubbed it the "Dry Nightmare" proj and it proved to offer some of the harder individual moves I have tried. Jimmy was able to polish it off the day I left calling it "Sleepwalker." I was stoked to return back and finish it off. A few days ago I made the 2nd asc.
