Jain Kim has repeated Reinis vibes, 8c/+, at Massone, Arco.
Although Jain Kim is ranked #1 in the world in Lead climbing and has a list of victories longer than my arm (and her arm span), she is more or less a newbie on rock. Only a few weeks ago she climbed her first 8b+ (entry level for newbies), a couple of days ago her first 8c, and now Reini's vibes, 8c/+!
Reinis vibes is, as Bibita Biologica, a steep route in the Il Pueblo sector at Massone, Arco.
I'm pretty sure this one looked easy as well.
