/ NEWS: Stoking the fire, 3rd 9b for Jakob Schubert
> I remember Sharma saying in an interview a few years ago (2012?) that he thought Neanderthal was low end 9b. Interesting that no-one else has managed it yet
Ondra has been exceedingly close. Last year he fell off a hands off rest after the jump move when a hold snapped.
Yes, you're right, I also remember reading Ondra's comment about Lapsus. So, it may turn to be considered easier in the future and doesn't qualify as 9b anymore.
Sorry for the off-topic remark, but talking about the difficulty range between routes of the 'same' grade, McClure's 9b seems to be a tough one! to me he's also at the peak of the red point specialization.
