Nalle Hukkataival has repeated Paul Robinson's Ill trill, ~8B+/C, at Magic wood/Averstal, Switzerland.
Solving the beta puzzle took some effort, but soon enough I managed to climb Ill Trill 8B+/8C in a session!
Nalle has been working exclusively on his Lappnor project since early March, and except for a few problems in Font and at Mello blocco, he hasn't topped out any problems for the entire time.
When I suggested that him climbing this problem so quickly means the Lappnor project must be "not that easy after all", he replied that it's most probably "Old school 7C.
And "There's nothing harder than old school 7C's. Everybody knows that!"
So, there you have it, the scoop of the year.
