Philippe Ribiére reports, Natalija Gros has made, what I think must be, the first female flash of an 8A, with her ascent of Confessions of a crap artist at Chironico. A Slovenian team has spent a few days in the area training and having fun on the boulders it seems. More information, in Slovenian, can be found at Alpikor.
The first woman to flash 7C+, was Josune Bereziartu, with Schwarzwaldklinik in the Frankenjura waaaay back in the day (1999?).
