Fast repeats of 8B's by Graham

Dave Graham has made fast work of classics such as Crown of Aragorn and Coeur de Leon, both 8B and both at Hueco Tanks, thereby increasing his number of Hueco 8B's this February to 4. Coeur de Leon was first climbed by Fred Nicole way back in -98 and went unrepeated for quite a few years. Since the FA a new easier sequence, involving a knee bar has been discovered. That's why it's no longer 8B+.
