On his first climbing day at Topside, South Africa, Nalle Hukkataival managed to repeat Paul Robinson's A simple knowing, which was given 8C.
Nalle comments on his blog:
I just made the first repeat of Paul Robinson's V15 (8C), A Simple Knowing, at Topside. I managed to climb it quickly in half an hour. It's a nice problem, but once again nowhere near the difficulty that I consider V15.
Nalle's was only the 2nd ascent, so I guess it remains to be seen whether this is an 8C or not.
