Daniel Woods made the first ascent of a boulder problem he named Apu (V13) yesterday in Peru’s Hatun Machay, a pre-Incan holy place sitting at 4,300 meters.

I found this perfect 45-degree room with perfect crimps going out it,” Woods posted on his Instagram. After figuring out a sequence that worked, Woods added Apu to the list of just a few established boulder problems in the area.

“You really feel the altitude while climbing,” Woods posted. “I think this is the highest elevation boulder that I have put up.”
