Mega! Am I right in thinking that DG's first 8C+ boulders were both done recently? If so then it's especially impressive that he's still improving at the highest levels at 40. Most athletes in other sports are done at that age.
His talk at the Works a few years ago was ace, kind of bouldering reinvented by a mad professor vibe. Asked what he’d be if not climbing, he said an actor, seems family background is quite literary / thespian. For some reason I wasn’t expecting that.

So he freed all the pitches, in one push, but not in order (including two after summiting?)
