Andrew Palmer has repeated Jaws II, aka Broken Jaws, 9a+, at Rumney, New Hampshire.
Andrew Palmer is a Rumney local and he has worked the route for quite a while. His ascent was the 4th, after Vasya Vorotnikov, Daniel Woods and Mike Foley.
Originally the route was put up by David Graham as an 8c, but after some holds broke, both at the first and what became a second crux, the difficulty was bumped up all the way to 9a+.
dpm climbing has the full story as well as an interview with Andrew.
There is also a video of Andrew almost sealing the deal the day before the ascent.
