It's still the season in Rocklands, South Africa, and Fabian Buhl from southern Germany, thought he'd tag along on the sending spree that's been going on there lately.
The other day, he made the 6th(?) ascent of Fred Nicole's Oliphant's dawn which he later followed up with an ascent of Fred Nicole's Golden shadow. Both of these now seem to have settled around the 8B+ mark.
I'm sure Fabian has done quite a lot more, as he has been in South Africa for at least 6 weeks.
