8A+ flash by McColl

© UKC News
Sean McColl has had a good few days in the Magic wood of Averstal, Switzerland, after the World Cup premiere a couple of weeks ago. 
The highlight must have been the 2nd ever (at least as far as I'm aware) flash, after Paul Robinson's last year, of Jack's broken heart, a steep, somewhat scary, 8A+. 

Sean also did a further four of the same grade, one of which, Free for all, he flashed. I'm sure we'll soon be able to read all about it on his blog.
