The North Face x Mellow Film Documents Epic ‘Return of the Sleepwalker’ V17 Send

Want to know what it takes to climb one of the hardest graded routes in the world? Watch this film.

Back in April, boulder climber Daniel Woods sent the first V17 in the U.S. with his “Return of the Sleepwalker” route. Now, you can watch his full attempt.

Daniel put up the proposed V17 route in Red Rock, Nev., building on the existing V16 “Sleepwalker” line. “Return of the Sleepwalker” took him over 3 months to nail.
