Grand master of Frankenjura, Markus Bock, has added yet another extreme route to the area. As far as I know, Markus has already done all (ALL) the 8b-or-harder routes in the area, so if he wants to climb something new, he pretty much has to make the FA himself...

The 30-move Elder statesman, not far from Bamberg in the north west corner of Frankenjura, is said to be a 3 star line which weighs in around 9a/+.

Hm... I thought The Elder Statesman was freed by Stevie Mac ages ago...

Anyway, here's a video that, to be honest, doesn't say much about the route.
