Nalle Hukkataival has repeated Christian Core's Gioia, ~8C+, at Varazze, Italy.

Nalle's ascent was the third, after Core and Adam Ondra.

Originally given 8C by Core, both he and Adam Ondra has since suggested it's probably more 8C+, but it's too early to say it's confirmed at that grade. Nalle's opinion will of course carry some weight.

Hopefully I can give you a more detailed update soon.

Given the quickness of this repeat, I guess it's safe to say his projects back home in Helsinki must be beyond ridiculously hard.

Strange to see no real comments. IMHO an outstanding performance. Too bad Gaskins never tried this one in his prime and compared it to his hardest problems. Would clear up a lot on how hard all these hardest problems...
