Jimmy Webb has made a very quick 3rd ascent of David Graham's The Bridge of ashes, ~8C, at Elkland, Colorado.
The problem was put up by David Graham in March this year after an epic struggle with beta, weather, painful holds and skin conditions
Dave suggested 8C for the problem.
Now Jimmy Webb has done it. In half an hour.
On his 8a scorecard, he says he feels that, considering he did it so quickly, it's a bit below 8C for him.
I would say his recent track record, with six 8B flashes and a total of around 130 8A's and harder this year, suggests it could very well be Jimmy is stronger than he thinks.
Here is a video about the first ascent.
