I hope this isn't too much of a maverick report for a bouldering forum, but I'm sure some people will be interested. Tom Randall got the first repeat of Green Spit in Orco last week, touted as one of the worlds hardest cracks, at around F8b+.
He will be fourth (?) ascentionist after Didier Berthod, Nicolas Favresse and Sonnie Trotter which puts Tom in a pretty select (and godly) group.
Ondra's flashed two confirmed 8Bs in Rocklands. In fifteen minutes.
Fuck! When is anything actually going to challenge him?
Yes! Being angry after failure in Amandla, I flashed this one! could not have been more lucky, huge fight! thanks to Marijus for beta!
Cheers dudes. I think Reeve got a bit carried away with ascents as it's the 3rd ascent. Only The Sheep at Burbage to tick now and I can retire

The guide suggests french 8c but it looks a fair bit easier than that to me.
How so, is Ramshaw Crack within reach? Does look like some pretty knarly finger jams.
Essentially a very hard boulder problem on a rope!
