Caroline Ciavaldini is one of the select few women who've climbed the world class benchmark grade of 8c. Not only that. She's done it multiple times. 5 to be exact. Considering she typically does it in 2-5 tries, one would guess this is not even close to this 24 year old's limit, either.
Her latest 8c was Amateur de gros essaims, at La Baleine, which she did some 10 days ago, needing 4 tries in total.
