Michiel Nieuwenhuijsen from the (not so) mountainous region of Rotterdam, Netherlands, has repeated Vincent Pochon's The Big Island, ~8C, at Coquibus Rumont, Fontainebleau. 

For those not familiar with the problem, this is the lower start to Dave Graham's original The Island which was put up the year before (2008). Since Pochon did the lower start, although still a legitimate problem in its own right, it's more or less considered the last stepping stone before doing the whole thing.

A possible sit start, which would add a short ~8B or so to the ~8C, is there for the taking.
