Tamás Zupán has repeated Daniel Woods' In search of time lost, ~8C, in the Darkness cave, Magic Wood, Switzerland, thereby becoming the first Hungarian to reach this grade.
The problem hasn't had many repeats, but I'm very unsure as to who have actually done it... Daniel made the first ascent in 2008, Dai Koyamada the 2nd ascent in 2011 and then Carlo Traversi the 3rd the following year. Since then... who knows? This could be the 4th ascent.
Tamás is a 27 year old gym owner from Budapest who has previously repeated things like Memento and Anam Cara, both ~8B+.
