As mentioned before, Red Rocks, Nevada, has really been in vogue this season, with Paul Robinson's Meadowlark lemon, ~8B+, being one of the most coveted prizes.
Here are a couple of videos, featuring repeats and first ascents by Nalle Hukkataival and Niky Ceria.
Nalle is currently in Fontainebleau where he is trying to make the first post break ascent of Marc LeMenestrel's L'alchimiste which used to be 8B but is now... considerably harder. If the weather gets colder, maybe we'll soon see exactly how hard.
Meanwhile, Niky is planning a trip up north. Maybe Finland, maybe Åland. I'll try to convince him to visit Stockholm on the way.
