Ashima Shiraishi has done both Blood Meridian, ~8B, and Babeurre, ~8A+, in a day at Bishop.

As promised, 13 year old Ashima delivers at Bishop:

All in a day's work...I sent Babeurre V12 and Blood Meridian V13 (the first section of the mega-project).

Who knows, maybe she goes for that project now. Daniel Woods got close back in February when he did the ~8B and the ~8B+ parts, but didn't have the head to go for the sketchy ~7C+ top. According to The Formula, this project should weigh in around ~8C+... Check out Exposure II for video of this.

What is 'The Formula'?
27 Dec, 2014
Probably a comical reference to 'the grade calculator', where you put in the grade of the constituent parts and get out the grade of the whole thing. It's not actually a real thing (the real world being nuanced as it is.)

I guess the problem is shaping up to be America's first V16 unless someone comes along and downgrades it (groan)
