Matty Hong has made the 2nd ascent of Daniel Woods' White noise, ~8B+/C, at Wild Basin, Colorado.
According to Jamie Emerson who was there and caught the ascent on video, ...this long and strenuous problem, breaks down into a V14 [8B+] into a V10 [7C+].
Originally given 8C, Matty suggests it...

I will have to admit that I bottled the pedant post of 'you ARE UKC - you could actually try to bloody spell YOUR own post titles correctly'. I even thought of starting a new thread so as not to appear to be denigrating Matty Hong's success.
So thank you. These are supposed to be professionals.....

The formula is only valid if |X-Y|<=4. I guess that if it doesn't match this condition then the grade is just the greater of the 2. http://climbingczar.lt11.com/about-2/
I'm not saying that the formula can't be improved upon.
