Back in September of 2009 the well known Spanish team of Iker and Eneko Pou completed what they consider to be their hardest big wall route yet.

Orbayu, on the Naranjo de Bulnes, is 500m long, has 13 pitches and the crux pitch weighs in at a mighty F8c+/9a.

Here is a video of the route from Mike Call:

Yes - done in trad style which is good to see. I did like the photography of the cloud in the valley.
