First repeats of 'Keen roof' etc

A two man team of Alsatians (as in people from Alsace), Pierre Bollinger and Thomas Leleu, spent some time in the UK recently, and did some impressive repeats, including the 3rd ascent of James Pearson's Keen roof, 8B, at Raven Tor by Pierre. Spaniard Nacho Sanchez, who's living in the UK, nabbed the 2nd ascent just ahead of Pierre. The full story (in French) can be found here.
Over at UK Bouldering, it's reported it has now seen a 4th ascent as well. This time by Dave Nodden.
