Katharina Saurwein has repeated Lethal design, ~8A+, at Red Rock, Nevada.
Like so many others, Katharina is paying Red Rocks a visit this season and as usual she is delivering the goods:
After figuering out the beta and trying it for three days, I managed to climb 'Lethal design', a beautiful, crimpy power endurance problem. First 8a+ of the season.
She also says there will be a video soon.
Katharina is no stranger to hard bouldering having repeated dozens of 8A's and harder as well as regularly reaching the finals in the World Cup.
