Three female ascents in the 8th grade (updated)

Female ascents... sounds weird.
Oh, well.

  • At Hueco Tanks, Alex Johnson has done Diaphanous sea, 8A/+.
  • In the Frankenjura, Conny Matthes ticked another one by doing Tabasco, an 8A traverse.
  • At Jyougasaki, Akiyo Noguchi did Monsterman sd, 8A.

As far as I know, Alex' and Akiyo'a ascents are FFA:s, whereas Conny's is a 2nd female ascent after Dorothea Karalus, who climbed Tabasco in 2008, but if anyone knows better, please enlighten me.
