Vincent Pochon's The Big Island, at Coquibus Rumont, adds two physical moves to the start of Dave Graham's The Island, 8B+. Arjan's ascent was the 3rd after Pochon and Lucas Ménégatti.
*Satan i helvete was opened by Sébastien Frigault and was given 8C. As far as I know, no one has repeated the problem from Sébastien's original, somewhat contrived(?), start, instead opting to start one move in, making it a low start weighing in around 8B+. I don't know where Arjan and Nalle started, but hopefully I will soon.
