Didn't James Pearson flash 8B about ten years ago?

EDIT. Just seen the "on British soil" bit.

The problems that James flashed also settled at 8A+ - not to take away from his effort, it was utterly incredible at the time.

Fantastic effort. He's been doing pretty well in the extremely competitive Boulder world cups too recently. Shame he won't be doing the rest of those in a way, though interesting to see what Rocklands brings.
