After the break in December 2009, it's definitely harder. Adam and now Paul, say "hard 8B+", "The line feels hard but not 8C. I can imagine that it is quite harder than before when the hold was still there but in all, I think that hard 8B+ seems to be an appropriate grade for this one." was Paul's exact words, whereas Tatsuki feels it's no doubt 8C.
Paul says he's psyched now and that he now wants to do Nalle's Ninja skills, 8B+, and then The story of 2 worlds, 8C/+, which would complete his tour-de-Dreamtime-boulder.
