Matt Wilder on the Fly, 9a/8B

Matt Wilder has done the 9th (according to the Narc) ascent of Dave G's The Fly, 9a/8B on the Wiamea wall at Rumney, NH. Matt did it OG style (that's with a rope).
Here are all the ascents in chronological order (I think):
Dave Graham, FA
Chris Sharma (3rd try)
Jason Kehl, First ropeless ascent
Daniel Woods
 And here's a video of the send:
