Ethan Pringle has made the 3rd ascent of Dai Koyamada's +65 mover The wheel of life in the Hollow mountain cave, Grampians, Oz. Dai, who gave it 8C+, felt it would warrant a route grade of 9a+, whereas Ethan, who's quite a bit taller (don't know if it makes any difference) feels 9a is closer to the mark.
But then again, he felt Biographie/Realization was 9a too, so who knows...
I'll try to get a hold of the man for a short interview asap.
