The Californian dark horse Dan Beall has claimed the fourth ascent of Terremer (V15), in Hueco Tanks.

First climbed by the Swiss master Fred Nicole in 2006, Terremer links Diaphanous Sea (V12) into Terre De Sienne (V14) for a tour de force through incut crimpers that leads out of a dark corridor on Hueco Tank’s popular North Mountain. Originally suggested to be V16, Terremer has since settled at V15, which still makes it the hardest problem in Hueco Tanks. Paul Robinson first repeated the line in 2008 (see video below), and two years passed before Daniel Woods claimed the third ascent in 2010.

Although Dan Beall operates under the radar, he is no stranger to hard climbing. In 2010, he repeated Jade (V14) in Rocky Mountain National Park, and has established V14 in Bishop, California with his testpiece Misdirection. Beall is based out of San Diego, and despite being one of America’s strongest boulderers, he still does not have an 8a.nu scorecard.
