Jimmy Webb has made the 4th ascent of Jan Hojer's Jour de Chasse, ~8C, at Recloses, Fontainebleau.
Jan Hojer gave it low end 8C while Guillaume Glairon-Mondet was a bit hesitant as to whether it wasn't in fact a tad easier.
After dispatching it in only 15 minutes or so, Jimmy now suggests 8B+ is more correct. This is on the other hand more or less a habit of his so... who knows? Impressive as always.
The other day he also managed to flash Elephunk, ~8B. As far as I know, this is the second hardest flash in the area after Adam Ondra's flash of Gecko assis, ~8B+.
Since Jimmy arrived in Europe in early March, he has climbed a staggering 35 problems graded 8B or harder, 17 of which 8B+ and up.
Here is the video of Guillaume making the second ascent of Jour de Chasse:
