One one hand, I'm not surprised by his flash of an 8b+, as two weeks ago, I watched him flash an 8b, which he made look like 6b. He sauntered up, through the crux, carrying on a conversation about how the rock was really difficult to read. Made it look quite trivial.
On the other, I'm rendered mystified by his flash of the Path. To be able to keep it together, miles above gear, on a flash of this grade, on rock which can be slightly slippery at times, beggars belief.
