I'd still be very interested to see him repeat a few more of Sharma's 9b routes, Jumbo Love and FRFM in particular, if only see what he thinks of the grade.

Looks like he's content just to climb in his 9b+ comfort zone and isn't really very keen to push himself. I doubt he ever climb anything harder - doesn't seem to have the stomach for it.

Does that make Hubble 9b+ now?

Looking at the pictures, I wonder if that heinous-looking move is ''only'' part of the..7 meters-burly, 8b section!!? (From the height he's, it very well be the case)....Good effort, beast!

Sounds like the Czech Republic's Hubble. Could be a while before a repeat, I'd think.

I watched him try it, I think he was only in Margalef for 2 days but when we saw him try it just before he left he was falling off very close to the top, the move after crossing through with the mono. He was very close to getting and so impressive to watch.
