8B flash by Pearson! 10/17 Email from Shane Boen: "Hello, thought I would let you know about James Pearson's (UK) impressive tick list from his recent short visit to Colorado. One of his goals was to flash 8B, and he came very close on a number of problems, including Nuthin but sunshine and Dark waters. He finally managed his goal, flashing Secret splendor on Sunday 15th October. He also almost did Freaks of the industry, 8B+, on his first redpoint attempt, but failed to get good enough conditions on return visits. Bush pilot 8A, 3rd goNo more greener grass, 8A+, 1 sessionDark waters, 8B, almost flashed fell on the 7B finish!Clear blue sky, 8BSilverback, 8A, 1 hourSecret splendor, 8B, flash

Both Paul Robinson and Matt Wilder now say Secret splendour is not 8B, but rather 8A+. Says Robinson: " I dont think it is 8B. Most people are considering soft 8A+ now. New beta has been found, def not 8B."Jamie Emerson reports: "Matt Wilder has done Secret Splendour 3rd go and said it is bottom end V12 (8A+). Wilder tried to flash the four move problem, and fell on the third move. He then did the upper moves first go (which he humbly counted as an attempt) and then did the problem second try from the start, saying that it was an entry level V12. Still an impressive flash from James Pearson, but not 8B."It seems we'll have to wait some more for the first 8B flash, but like Emerson said, it's still a very impressive flash!
