As expected, Therese Johansen has done Black shadow, 8A+, at Rocklands, South Africa. I say "expected", because as I reported the other day, she did all the moves after just working them briefly. The problem was given 8B originally, but seems to now have settled around 8A+.
This was one of Therese's main goals for the trip, and she's only been there for a week or so. so perhaps it's time to raise the bar somewhat?
