After having fallen off post crux three times on RMNP test-piece Jade, ~8B+/C, James Webb decided he needed to find some new beta. Jimmy is a bit taller than everyone else who's done it, and was getting too bunched. When I talked to him two days ago, he said he'd do it tomorrow (which was yesterday), and as he's a man of his word, he simply had to, and promptly made the 7th ascent.
