Daniel Woods has made what is most likely the hardest flash ascent ever, Fred Nicole's Entlinge at Murgtal, Switzerland.

The problem was originally given 8C but is now, after some repeats, considered more like 8B+.

According to 27crags, Daniel agrees with this, and adds that it suits his style perfectly.

The ascent was caught on film and will feature in Welcome to the Hood later this spring. The movie will follow Daniel, Paul Robinson, Guntram Jörg, and Andy Gullsten around the world in search of the most amazing hard boulder problems.
Sounds pretty good!

The other members of the team aren't bad at the flashing game either. For example, Paul has flashed Nagual, hard 8B, at Hueco Tanks and Andy has flashed Shosholoza, 8A+, at Rocklands, the only flashes of these problems.

Here's a video showing Bernd Zangerl making the 2nd ascent.
