Split from significant repeats as deserves its own thread  IMO.

Amazing.

Didn't James Pearson flash 8B in Swizzy? Can't think of anything that hard being flashed in the U.K. before, proper waddage.

James flashed 3 8Bs two in Swizzy and one in Colorado but they all settled as 8A+. Definitely waddage, it's very easy to slip off that one.
