Unreported 8B+ repeats

Unreported by me that is. First to the German Frankenjura, where Boulderrausch reports Felix Knaub has repeated two of Bocki's 8B+'s, Riot act (5th ascent) and Semper Fi (3rd ascent), the latter 2nd go after figuring out the moves.
On the other side of the Atlantic, at Bradley, Connecticut, Phil Shaal has made the long awaited 2nd ascent of Dave G's The book of bitter aspects, put up in 2003. " didn't take much effort maybe 10 or so tries over 2 days"

The Book of Bitter Aspects from Phillip Schaal on Vimeo.
