I find this a bit odd... that some routes seem to get all the limelight and others, not so much.

In this occatition I can understand the news item (young lad crushing and Kammerlander klassik), but a double send of another F8b+  trad routes should also get some attention...

Or perhaps these E8/9/10 sends are so common place in the alps, that there is no need to reports them en mass.

My apologies if this was not mentioned on purpose, but since it's out on youtube, I reckon he doesn't mind the mild exposure.
