In the article it says 8B+, implying font 8B+. However, I think Tom gave it a route grade of F8b+ rather than a font grade due to it's length.

You haven't seen the length of the problems in the cellar! Around 40 moves on some of them. :)
Sorry, that was supposed to be a reply to UKC.
I suspect Tom's just given it 8b+ as he's too modest to claim anything hard fontwise...
Very impressive that looks really hard.
I have been trying it from left to right. It seems about V8 or something.
Well done Tom, looks nails! Good to see the targeted training paying off.
Walks in. Tapes up. Climbs.
Without a warm up no wonder he found it hard!!!!
Great climb. Well done.
