The lastest harvest gives us:
A repeat of Jonathan Siegrist's Pure Imagination at Red River Gorge's Chocolate factory by Enzo Oddo. The French wiz kid needed 11 goes in far too warm conditions to make the ascent.
A repeat of Estado critico at Siurana, Spain, by German Daniel Jung. This was his 5th of the grade.

A repeat of Berni Fiedler's Erfolg ist trainierbar at Adlitzgraben, Austria, by Micha Vanhoudt, who became the 2nd Belgian to climb this grade.
