Sounds like Caff has put up a new E9 in Nant Perris Quarry he's calling Crac y Meistr (from Ray Woods insta story).

Perhaps we need a ‘Notable FA’s’ thread to sit alongside this one for stuff that doesn’t quite deserve a new individual thread?

Awesome from Josh, must have been running out of conditions this side of summer?

I see a Angie Scarth-Johnson has done Víctimas Pérez (9a) at Margalef https://www.planetmountain.com/en/news/climbing/angie-scarth-johnson-repeats-victimas-perez-9a-at-margalef.html
For some reason this is in my mind as a really hard 9a, I think it might be because Ondra had a bit of a hard time on it!

Fuck me that's a good effort. I had 2 dogs and a send burn on a bouldery route with good rests and crisp conditions today and feel worked (maybe why I'm not climbing 9b...)

Just a thought; Ondra was about 17 when he did his first 9b? Josh can't be much older now? Incredible for him.

To be clear, no implication, just both things popped up on my feed around the same time

Conor Herson has repeated Empath on gear.
https://www.instagram.com/p/CerdpkSPGoL/?igshid=YmMyMTA2M2Y=

First ascentionist Carlo Traversi  graded it 5.15 (9a+). It’s been repeated with the bolt protection  by Daniel Woods, Jimmy Webb, Connor Herson and Ethan Pringle. The latter used crack gloves and suggested 5.14+.

Herson didn’t use gloves on either of his ascents.

That's mega! Got to be one of the hardest pieces of trad climbing out there along with Tribe and Recovery Drink.

I think Nathaniel Coleman and Keenan Takahashi have audio climbed it (on bolts).

Sounds like he did it in a session? Or had he been on it previously? Seemed to make quick work of it either way.

Sounds like Pete Whittaker made the third ascent of Randall's 8B The Kraken at Hartland Quay yesterday. It's his first 8B if I'm counting correctly.

Herson didn’t use gloves on either of his ascents.

The name Herson rang a bell, and I suddenly realised that his father must be Jim Herson, author of many fine trip-reports I read on rec.climbing some 25 years ago, and the first journeyman climber to free climb Salathe. I did a bit of googling and his trip reports are still available: http://www.jimherson.com/climbing/tr.html

The TRs are still incredibly inspiring!

Those moves off the toe hook look absolutely desperate. His hardest boulder to date, by a slash grade?
